Hall avenue section 1

The very first yards of Hall Avenue are treacherous due to the meandering slopes.

Despite the pair of billboards that are located on this road, it isn't a very stunt-friendly area. This is due to the fact that to reach those Billboards one must get to the top of Car Parks which isn't advisable considering the risk of combo loss and the loss of time itself. Stuntmen should prefer reaching more point-lucrative areas instead.
When seeking cover, shortcuts are the best solution. The warehouse rooftop passage proves handy and effective for this.
