Ryugu's bouldery surface
A close-up view of Ryugu shows terrain located north of the equatorial bulge. The ground slopes away steeply from the ridge, with slopes as high as 34 degrees; "downhill" is toward the top of this photo. Some of the boulders seem to be stacked on each other ("imbricated"), implying that they slid downhill from bottom to top.
