The structure of a large paleoseismodislocation located on the southeastern flank of the Cherskii seismic belt, in the upper reaches of the Ola River, 125 km NNE of Magadan, is studied. Detailed morphologic, morphometric, and structural descriptions of this paleoseismodislocation are made. The main parameters of the landslide body and the dammed lake formed by it are determined. The correlating deposits formed in the dammed lake and upon the surface of rupture are studied, and their radiocarbon age is determined.
