"A sparsely vegetated pyroclastic cone, Volcán Apagado, lies in the center of the peninsula between the Gulf of Ancud and the Reloncaví estuary. The volcano, also known as Hualiaque, is located west of Hornopirén volcano and SW of Yate volcano. The symmetrical cone contains a well-preserved summit crater. A 6-km-wide depression breached to the SW mentioned by González-Ferrán (1995) and a small lava flow from a second pyroclastic cone that was said to travel to the SW through a breach in the SW side of the depression are not prominent on satellite imagery. Volcán Apagado was estimated to be of Holocene age by González-Ferrán (1995), consistent with its youthful appearance."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
