NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity recorded this view of the summit of "Cape Tribulation," on the western rim of Endeavour Crater, on the day before the rover drove to the top. This crest is about 440 feet (about 135 meters) higher in elevation than the plain surrounding the crater, higher than any other point Opportunity has reached since it began exploring the Endeavour rim in 2011.

This view combines four images taken by Opportunity's navigation camera on Jan. 5, 2015, during the 3,893rd Martian day, or sol, of the rover's work on Mars. The summit is about 40 feet (about 12 meters) southwest of the location from which the images were taken.
