Looking north over South Crater
South Crater is thought to be an filled-in glacial cirque (the basin at the head of a glacier) rather than the crater formed by a volcanic vent. Poles guide you across the crater for nearly a kilometre with the clay ground underfoot either dusty or muddy depending on the weather. The ridge on the other side looks daunting but is easily climbed on a rising traverse up onto the crest and a tremendous rock turret.
