Pyroclastic cones of Golets and Tornyi, is SW of Medvezhi volcano at one of the narrowest parts of Iturup Island, and formed during the late Pleistocene or early Holocene. A small lava flow from the 417-m-high Tornyi cone occupies a broad glacial cirque. The 442-m-high andesitic-dacitic Golets cone, constructed above the eroded remnants of the Pleistocene Parusnaya Mountain volcano, produced lava flows that reached the coast.
