Bravo, Cerro
"Cerro Bravo is a relatively low dominantly dacitic lava-dome complex north of Nevado del Ruiz volcano that was constructed within the Pleistocene Quebrada Seca caldera. A series of moderate plinian eruptions during the Holocene has been accompanied by pyroclastic flows and lava dome growth. Although historical records of the roughly 4000-m-high Cerro Bravo eruptions have not been found, stratigraphic evidence indicates that the volcano last erupted sometime between the 1595 and 1845 eruptions of Ruiz volcano."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
