On your excellent route map, Tesheiner, it seems quite clear which area they should steer clear of, namely the down-flow of loose sand which even has some ripples in it. It seems there's a bridge across that down-flow a good deal further down, just off the large boulder that has come off the cliff. There, you can quite clearly see "stepping stones" across the down-flow, which might suggest that going close to the cliff and then along the face would lead to a position further down where they can move away from the face again.

I'm really loving the shadow in this rear hazcam:

Nice outline of the arrays, PMA, Low gain, High gain, and is that the sundial mast in there as well.

Probably the UHF antenna, and a pyro-bolt. I think the gnenom, errm, gnomen, err, sundial stalk bit would be behind the HGA shadow.

VERY cool picture smile.gif

I reckon it is the sundial, compare to this navcam taken at an earlier time of sol. The shadows are shorter (the low gain and PMA shadows fall on the deck) and the sundial shadow falls right to the edge of the deck even at this time. The position, particularly relative to the pyro-bolt and the array outline matches too.

Today, sol 1596, Opportunity continued its efforts to drive up to the wall of Cape Verde.
But this time, differently from previous days when the rear wheels were digging in the sand, specially the right one (left on the images), we can see they are back on "solid" ground. Reason is (I guess) because the rover moved back down slope and not uphill.

I hope this is just a sort of "tactical manouver". smile.gif

From the front hazcam looks more like a turn in place to the left.

Another turn in place to the left today. Seems that they may be orientating for a drive up slope and possibly out of the crater?
