Volcano spines are narrow, steep-sided ridges or peaks that form on the surface of a volcano during eruptions. They are typically made of solidified lava or volcanic rock, and can vary in size and shape depending on the specific eruption style and materials involved. Volcano spines are often unstable and can collapse, leading to dangerous pyroclastic flows and ash dispersal.

a volcano spine is a type of ramp, it is the same as a regular spin but it has a gap in the middle of it so you have to go further to make it
