Glacial valleys descend from the western side of Alney, which along with Chashakondzha, forms one of the largest volcanic complexes of the Sredinny Range. This is one of the few large stratovolcanoes in the Sredinny Range known to have been active throughout the Holocene, with more than 30 documented pyroclastic deposits. Scoria cones on the eastern flanks formed during the Holocene. Copyrighted photo by Adam Kirilenko, 2003.
