This summit  is part of this volcano’s complex, but is actually taller than the volcano-proper. Also, the inner caldera ring cannot be seen here because it is actually underwater in the lake.

And also, as can be the nature of caldera-forming eruptions, there are ignimbrites here. This one appears to be heavily eroded, though it is possible some of this could be the work of humans.
