Tire Tread Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Tire Tread Wall. Photo by Blitzo.
This wall is just up and right from the Atlantis Wall and could be considered an extension of Atlantis. It is defined by the dark markings on the wall that look like a tire tread.
Same approach as the Atlantis Wall but scramble to the top of the canyon and it will be on the left (east) facing wall.
