Cerro Bravo is seen from the east. The summit dome was extruded during the most recent eruption and has a spine (a steep dome) near the top. An older lava dome and cone complex is situated to the left. Multiple collapse events sent block-and-ash flows down over lava flows (center) and onto the Plan de Arriba (lower left). The low tree-covered slope (left foreground) is the remnant of the pre-Cerro Bravo edifice that was destroyed by a Pleistocene caldera-forming event.
