Bely
"The late-Quaternary Icelandic-type basaltic Bely shield volcano in the northern Sredinny Range is topped by a small stratovolcano. The smaller shields Sergeeva and Keveneytunup are located to the south and east, respectively, and the late-Pleistocene Lagerny shield lies to the SE. Keveneytunup at 2133 m is the highest of these volcanoes, slightly exceeding the 2080-m-high Bely volcano. Early geologic studies in the Sredinny Range (Ogorodov et al. 1972) identified numerous Holocene eruptive centers based primarily on morphological criteria. However, later work has suggested that Sredinny Range volcanoes are less mantled by Holocene tephras than eastern Kamchatka volcanoes and therefore appear more youthful, so that Holocene eruptions are uncertain for many of these Sredinny Range eruptive vents."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
