Bogatyr Ridge
"The Bogatyr Ridge on Iturup Island in the southern Kuriles consists of a cluster of small NE-SW-trending late-Pleistocene to Holocene cones and craters, along with the larger Stokap stratovolcano at the SW end of the ridge. The basaltic-andesite to andesitic Stokap is capped by a complex of 8-10 cones and explosion craters, the largest of which contains a lake. The volcanic chain was constructed over a high Pleistocene base, whose glaciated surface is covered by lava flows from Stokap that reach to both the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Okhotsk. No historical eruptions are known from the volcanic chain."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
