Moore's offers a variety: adventurous Trad, very hard Sport, and Bouldering for all abilities. What it does NOT offer is a place for beginners to top rope or attempt their first leads.
As part of Hanging Rock State Park, Moore's Wall is subject to park regulations, including climber registration (free). Camping is available in the park.
Continue up Charlie Young Road past the Tory's Den parking, then go right onto Hooker Farm Road for less than a half mile; turn right at the handy brown "Climbers Access" sign onto another dirt road and continue a short distance to a gravel parking lot on the left. In addition to a registration kiosk, this new climber's parking lot sports a unisex bathroom and a water pump for last-minute fills of the water bottle.
The approach from the climber parking lot is fairly aerobic, gaining about 500' of elevation in a 20-minute hike. Follow the trail past the kiosk for about 10 minutes until you reach a gravel power line road, and turn left. From here there are several trails that take you to the different sectors. See specific areas for detailed directions to each sector.
