So in my geology class, the professor was talking about volcanic dikes, and I realized that a central plutonic rock with radiating dikes would explain the shape of the Lonely Mountain quite well. A bit of digging turned up this lovely image (source), explaining the broadly similar Shiprock in New Mexico, USA.

In most cases, dikes are buried, but they can end up eroding out due to being harder than the surrounding rock.

Just something neat while the next Hobbit movie gets closer.

holy crap, this is awesome!
