The western slopes are thought to have been extensive hillside kumara gardens. At the height of its occupation, around 1000 people lived on this pā settlement. Remnants of the pā terraces and pits are still visible around the crest of the maunga, including historic midden deposits containing shells of cockles, pipi, catseye, scallop, obsidian, and bone.
These are important archaeological features that should not be disturbed or entered.
The explosive fire-fountaining eruption built up a scoria cone 143 meters tall, creating a central crater and a horseshoe-shaped depression from later lava flow that reached as far as the junction of Broadway and Great South Road, connecting with the Mt Eden lava field.
