I would recomend a compass heading of 200 to put you in the middle of the ledge. 210 risks you missing it. I had heard this was a 10 foot tall wall. Its more like a 6 foot ledge though I have read elsewhere that its height changes is it gets burried and un burried by sand. The STEEP sand slope above it would make that possible. Any ways, it was a fun enough dive. Not a whole lot of variety in fish, but a ton of medium sized rockfish that must be fed at times, cause they are not shy and swarmed around us. Saw a couple of Sailfin Sculpins and Gunnels as well as what looks like Octo dens with lots of crab shells, but it looked like no one was home. I dont know If I would drive out there just for this dive, but it is a great second dive to East Wall!
