Spectacular, with vertical and undercut 50'-60' tall walls extending down from 120'. The wall scenery is very nice, covered in sponges and forests of red gorgonians. Some schools of rockfish, also found a rock with at least 7 Starry rockfish (!) and another one with a nice adult wolfeel hiding in a hole.

I brought the wrong lens for this one (wide angle) as we saw lots of interesting macro life. I did manage to get an image of a Porter's chromodorid, the first time I've seen on in all the dives I've done in Monterey region.
