Summary: We arrived at “Stacy’s Cake” rather quickly because of our previous scouting. We walk towards” Candor Chasma” (sort of canyon) where we had spotted an interesting cliff to conduct our experiment. That cliff is on the north side of the canyon and has visible strata. We had the time to let the CRV (Cliff Reconnaissance Vehicle) a few meters down the cliff and go to the other side of the canyon to take some shots (see Journalist Report). We then proceeded to gather our equipment and head back towards the Hab. It was an efficient and well planned EVA.
