Dived this for the first time yesterday after doing KVI. You can easily spend your entire dive around just one of the rock piles. We found lots of large octopus and ling cod, and tons of rockfish. The rock piles are huge and completely covered in plumose anemones.

One of the local operators has placed a buoy on the site at the NW corner of one of the rock piles. Currently, it was a small green buoy attached to a concrete-filled trash can, which had slid about 50 ft from the site.
