Hydrothermally altered rocks form the summit ridge of Komarov in this view from the east. Komarov is a complex structure in the northern half of the Gamchen ridge and lies at the western end of a 2.5 x 4 km caldera. Holocene lava flows, such as the one in the foreground, extend beyond the caldera to the east and west.
