View from Kalahaku Overlook into the Haleakalā Crater. However, this depression is most likely not of volcanic origin. Instead it represents the head of two erosional valleys leading down through the Ko'olau Gap and the Kaupō Gap (left centre). Haleakalā was last erupting at some time in the period between 1480 and 1790.
