Direct Wi-Fi Link to Phone?

Does anyone know if it is possible to connect to a Wi-Fi camera (Argus 3 Pro) directly through a phone's wifi? I'm setting up an solar-powered Argus 3 Pro to take a time lapse at a remote site. As the camera will be mounted up high, I don't want to have to get the SD card out to periodically get the footage. Ideally, I'd like to be able to connect to the camera via Wi-Fi directly from the phone to access the SD card. I've partially tested this by connecting the camera to the phone as a hotspot, but it seems like the connection is still running through the phone's internet connection, which I'd like to avoid as the site has very weak cell coverage if any, and I am looking to transfer several GB at a time.
Has anyone figured this out? My plan b is to bring an old wireless hotspot without a sim card and use it as a router and connect both the phone and camera to it, but that seems like a bit of an unnecessary pain.

If you connect your camera to your phone hotpot, it will certainly uses the Internet data of your phone.
