Is this where the lava reaches the surface?

This was a few hundred metres below the summit, on top of a cooled section of the currently active lava flow. The flow/s was quite wide with many different moving parts. As far as I could tell, the flow continued past this point before cascading down a steeper slow as an incandescent rockfall/avalanche. Not sure if the current flow exits via the summit or the flank somewhere.
