Description: Coats (1950): minor explosive activity at Gareloi in 1791. Grewingk (1850, translated 2003 by Fritz Jaensch) states that Sarychev passed Gareloi on the twenty-fourth of September, 1790 and on June 17, 1791 and described Gareloi as a "very tall, snow-covered, fire-belching mountain." It is uncertain if an eruption was observed on either or both of these occasions. Petroff (1884), Becker (1898), and Dall (1870) make no mention of this eruption.
