This site is in Granesundet just N of Askvoll, where a power cable crosses high above the fjord. Beneath the cable there is a sand slope to 30m, followed by a boulder slope to 40m, then a vertical wall plunging away to the depths. About 50m to the N, the top of the wall rises to 15m. There were plenty of fish and crusteaceans at this site, and some bolocera anemones on the wall. A wrecked lorry has been seen here. There was a gentle current going N, probably tidal.
