Full Size Image

Devil Peak is a small (~2.5 km diameter) hypabyssal rhyolite dome that intruded into Paleozoic carbonate strata of the southern Spring Mountains (Guest, et al., 2007). It is also the probable source for megabreccia sheets, pyroclastic deposits, and obsidian rock avalanche deposits that make up the crest of Black Butte. These deposits are evidence for about 30 km of dextral slip along the Stateline Fault System.


Elevation: 5856ft, 1785m.
