There is little cover on this side above the trail. The trail is cut
into the side of a cliff. There are some scrubby trees growing here
and there, but not enough to hide Oz's entire company.

However, there are more trees on the cliffside below the trail. It
might be a bit dangerous (it's about a ten foot drop/slide down), but
that offers a lot more cover.

Two minutes might be a bit optimistic. It's basically a lot of loose
shale, which will make for difficult footing. Men with lighter kit
might be able to make it, but your heavy weapons guys would have a
tough time getting to the top in two minutes.

Up to Oz to assess. Good luck!
