15-Feb-2003 -- Third time is a charm! This was the third attempt to reach that site and obtain additional pictures.

First directly from Wādiy Rayyān, then from an off-road track travelling towards Baḥariyya.

Both previous attempts from the west ended at large dune streets. The access from the N-NW is the best.
