Reminds me of Spirit's journey down Husband Hill. Downhill is always easier, even on Mars!

Not really. When going straight uphill the worst that is going to happen is that you can't, you just roll back and try a different route. When going downhill it is possible you can't control the vehicle's path. If the path the vehicle is taking is leading to an obstacle, you are toast (# Wopmay?).

That is going to be the biggest challenge when driving down Perseverance Valley. Fortunately I don't have much hair to lose anymore.

Will new crater get a look, or straight to Perseverance Valley?

Looks as if they're beelining it to Perseverance Valley. I'm guessing that the science value of looking at a channel up close for the first time outweighs whatever the new crater excavated. Probably a good idea to get in a good chunk of the observation campaign in before winter, just in case.
