This is an example of a highly aggressive, non-native making a steady, mono cultured march up the side of this native habitat....
Seen at clifftop level.

aka pride of Mardiera. It has been "luxuriously naturalized" (Marin Flora). Surprisenly fuzzy furry from leaves all the way down on stems. Big purple flowers. (Chapstick for scale).
