Evaluation

*Average:    3.78
Dove this site over two days and loved it. The first day was from 'The Cut' which is accessed from the very highest point of the parking area. After a huge climb down the mountain, the giant splint in the granite opens up into a tiny cove for entry over a mix of small to medium loose rocks so hold on. Follow the wall to the right and you will see a huge area of plumose anemone between 45-60 fsw. The wall has an amazing amount of diversity and it is completely covered with life. The only negative was my timing, summer vis is low, and the climb back up the hill - about 100 ft vertical climb with gear. Dove the cove on the second day and it was a nice area - can easily see why they train here. The left wall of the cove stays around 60 fsw until you go around the point and then it drops to more than 400 feet. Be sure to check out the life on the ropes - lots of tube anemones and sponge. Not as much life on the cove walls but still a nice dive.
