This view of the rock 'Chimp' was acquired by the Sojourner rover's
right front camera on Sol 74 (September 17). A large crack, oriented
from lower left to upper right, is visible in the rock. A dark crust appears
to cover Chimp in some areas whereas other parts of the rock have a
lighter shading. A boundary between the two regions is clearly seen in
the upper left part of Chimp.
