Curiosity: Which way up?

2092-navcam-annoSol 2092, June 25, 2018. Following a 24-meter (78 foot) drive, Curiosity is nearing a steeper part of the Vera Rubin Ridge. As the rover’s drive plan takes it back up the face of the ridge, the question arises of which way to go.

Above is the Navcam view, while below is the Mastcam’s zoom-in on an upper part of the ridge, showing its finely layered structure. The yellow arrow in the Navcam view above points to the large rock at left in the Mastcam scene below. Both images enlarge when clicked.
