Black Mountain

Black Mountain is a thousand meter high flat-topped volcanic cinder-cone surrounded by black sand and siltstone slopes. The top of the central core is accessible only by flying vehicles or aircraft, or men with climbing hear. Vault 57 scouts have scaled the mountain and explored the area but found nothing and were unable to enter the structure (the hovercraft lacks the altitude capability).

At the top of the volcanic tower is a shallow bowl shaped crater with a 100 meter area of flat rock at the bottom. In the center is an indestructible durasteel hemispherical structure 30 meters in diameter and 10 meters high with no visible entrance. An ancient landing pad is nearby. No one has ever entered this structure, if it is even intended to be entered, or determined it’s purpose. All that remains of less sturdy outbuildings are vague outlines and a few tumbles of cinderblock fragments. It’s apparent that tactical nukes were detonated on and around the mountain in the distant past.
