The ~85m drive on sol 3744 was uphill, starting the long climb of Cape Tribulation. smile.gif

Do we know if Opportunity will be traveling east or west around Wdowiak Ridge [name corrected]?

It won't be east. The slopes on the inside of the crater are too steep. I don't know if they want to visit that outcrop but if they do I'd expect they'd sneak up on it from the right (west) where the gradients are less severe

I'm not sure as the Eastern side is actually 200 m from the drop into the crater.

I'd say the east side is doable. Remember this image in a recent Crumpler blog that has a dashed green line following the eastern ridgeline up and then turning west to get behind Cape Stevens. There was no description of that dashed line, but we've also heard that several options were being considered.

OK... I was wrong. I saw the observation name cape Stevens and assumed it might be the rocky ridge south of us. Not so - it was a bit of outcrop near the rover. The big ridge is called Wdowiak Ridge. I will correct the map soon.

Yeah!

And with this last drive we've really climbed - we're getting back up towards the elevation of Broken Hills, as you can see from these hazcam views:

A quick circular view of sol 3749. The foreground features give a pretty good location.
