Many of the climbs are so heavily painted that there is no friction what so ever. Using a knife I was able to peel big chunks off, it came off pretty clean too.

The "Sea Of Glass" route was pretty cool. Featureless slab that forces you to trust your shoes. Paint at the bottom makes for a tricky start.

Hangover is another fun climb. One of the few that doesn't have paint.

At the main trail heading up the side of the hill from the parking on orion, right when you make a left down to slide rock, there is a cool boulder that looks like it has chipped holds. Couple cool routes on it.

Not much out there other than that except for a few scattered boulders that probably aren't worth the walk and dogs barking.
