Keeps on going, and going, and going...

From Space.com (bolds mine):

At its Gusev crater exploration site, the Spirit Mars rover is wheeling to the summit of Husband Hill and likely to complete its climb this week.

"I think we’re going to make it," said the Mars Exploration Rover program’s lead scientist, Steve Squyres of Cornell University. New imagery from the robot shows a feature that is either the summit or something very close to it, he noted in a newly issued rover update on a Cornell University-based website.

Spirit touched down on Mars at Gusev crater in early January 2004

I would say 'nicely done', but it appears as if Spirit and Opportunity are far from done. Read the whole thing.
