Ivao Group
"The Ivao group of cones along the Krishtofovich Ridge of SW Urup Island contains several well-preserved cones of Holocene age. The first of a group of three young cones that formed along a NW-SE line is 1426-m-high Ivao cone, which marks the high point of Urup Island at the NW end of the chain. The SE-most cone bisects a glacial valley, forming Lake Ivao. The elongated central cone, Krutaya Mountain, is the youngest, and produced a viscous lava flow that traveled to the east."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
