The scoria cone within the summit crater of Tongariro’s Ngāuruhoe cone formed during the 1954-75 eruptions. The majority of the cone formed during 1954-55 with the red unit at the top (along the right rim of the crater in this view) forming during the 1974-75 eruption. The outer crater rim is to the right. The northeastern part of the Tongariro volcanic complex is in the background, with Blue Lake visible at the top of the photo.
