|For organizational purposes, Moore's Wall should be broken up into separate areas on this website (ie. Amphitheater, Circus Wall, etc.) like a guidebook would have routes listed.|

I'd love to see Aloof Roof (5.8R) added to Mtn Prjct Moore's Wall page. It's a great climb that starts very similarly to Super Direct, then runs up the face, around the arete from Breaking Rocks 5.9 start.
There's also an alternate 5.8 start to Breaking Rocks, off to the left of the regular start.
And Dromedary (5.8) would be another one to add. It's a little dirty/rough but has its interesting moments.
Aloof Roof and Dromedary are letter climbs in the NC guidebook. When I get to Moore's next time, I'll take a pic and post it for Aloof Roof. Dromedary is a bit harder to capture in photos.
A Piedmont guidebook is coming soon. Not sure, but perhaps it will be divided into separate areas. Be on the lookout from cragmama.com and Earthbound Sports (Bill Webster).

It was a lengthy process, but I've divided Moore's up into sectors. I might divide some of the sectors up into smaller, "sub-sectors" like the three different areas of the North End, and upper and lower tiers for the Hanging Garden. Still working on descriptions and L to R sorting...
@ Sarah - Please go ahead and add those routes. If you have climbed them, you are the best one to add them. They don't need pics, but it's nice.
@ EVERYONE - I haven't done some of the rap descents in years... particularly on the Central Wall. I'm going to add descent info to each section and I'd love for you guys to PM me w/ descriptions of descent options that you are familiar with... for all sectors please.
Also, if you have a picture that you feel shows a certain area of Moore's well, please submit it to that section and I'll use it as the feature image.

|Does anyone know about bouldering in the Moore's Wall area? I've heard it referred to as 2 Mile, and I've done some stuff near Stigmata and the trailside boulders and the Eurowall. I've heard there's a lot more, and I was hoping to get a topo or directions to climbing areas with known grades. Thanks.|

|To get to the boulder field near SB, follow the approach trail. On the second leg of the trail towards SB, you'll see a "boulders ->" sign about 300-400 yards from the main wall, if that far. I haven't been to any of the other bouldering at or near Moore's- this is the only that I know of exactly, although I know that much more exists.|
