While an active period of eruption so called “volcanic bombs” and lava come out of the crater and all that makes the ascent dangerous. Observation itself is worthwhile getting there, still it is better to watch it from safety place (for example from the slopes or tops of Ushkovskiy or Kamen volcanoes).
