High sloped volcanic dome on Mars about the height of Mount Everest. In the Uranius group of volcanos, which are significantly older than those at Tharsis. Clouds were found over its summit. The sides are etched with valleys, suggesting a soft easily eroded material was deposited, such as ash. One of them leads into the nearby Rahe crater. The summit may have held an glacier ice cap and or a lake at one point. Ice may have melted from this glacier and emptied into Rahe crater.
