The channel in the central part of the image is flowing along the inner rim of the crater and into the main Maja Valles channel just off the image to the left. Maja Valles in 1600 km (1000 miles) long. Like most outflow channels in the region, Maja Valles arises from Valles Marineris and drains into Chryse Planitia. Maja Valles starts in Juventae Chasma.
