Trough Wall in Tempe Terra

A Trough Wall in Tempe Terra
In a Context Camera image, it looks like there may be layers or a steep section at the base of the wall. Perhaps the floor fell from the loss of ground ice, making a steep, but short scarp along the bottom. There are also ring-mold craters in this area, so the ground is probably ice-rich.
