A 250 section of the wall drops vertically to over 500 feet. There is a corner to the wall slightly south of the boat that is marked by a large pillar coral head. This area has the lower plateau at 100 feet and there is a swivel chair in the sand at 110 feet. The deep section of the wall from 70 to 120 feet has numerous encrusting rope sponges and some huge elephant ear sponges. Lots of interesting small creatures including anemones, blennies and nudibranchs can be found on the ridge or sand.
