The objective of this observation is to examine at least two layers that are exposed in the wall of an impact crater that’s less than 5 km across.

Even without a 3D picture, we can easily see that the crater’s walls are fairly steep. Phlegra Montes are a series of mountain ranges, massifs and knobby terrain in the northern lowlands of Mars.
