Alan Shepard captured this pan about 75 meters south east of the rim of Cone Crater. It was at this point that Mitchell and Shepard had used up their time allotted to find the rim of the crater and now had to turn around. It had been a long trek up the slopes of the crater and the crew hoped that the rim would be visible from this location, but even though they felt they had reached the maximum elevation, there was no more time to continue searching for the rim as importnant sampling and data recording needed to be done.

Even though this pan was captured approximately 1.25 KM from the Lunar Module, it can just be seen as a small dot to the right of Edgar Mitchells helmet hompage
