Asuncion is a large asymmetrical stratovolcano located in northern Mariana Islands. The NE flank has high sea cliffs, and the gentler SW flanks have low-angle slopes bounded by sea cliffs only a few meters high.

An explosive eruption in 1906 produced lava flows that descended about half way down the western and SE flanks.
