Explored the Area of Route 1101. Climbed to the west most peek and was able to establish comms with the HAB from there. Also found metals cans in the shape of a P. Could be from our lost crew member…but not determinable. No other wreckage found. Suggest exploration elsewhere… Upon return we checked the state of the tank in RAM. We removed it and drained the excess water and then replaced in RAM in prep for cleaning more at some later date.
