In 2004, volcanologist Jack Souther of the Geological Survey of Canada convinced that Piccolo Summit is composed of lava flows that erupted from a volcano about 100 million years ago during the Late Cretaceous period. Nearby Whistler Mountain is composed of lava flows and nearby Flute Summit is a subvolcanic intrusion that was formed during the same period.
