Description

Mores Mountain consists of two granite spires which contain many bolted face routes, and a few cracks. Much of the rock is covered in small knobs, and although the rock quality may not be quite as excellent (although still very good on the well traveled routes), it is a bit reminiscent of the rock in Tuolumne Meadows.

Getting There

From Boise, take Bogus Basin Road past the Bogus Basin ski resort. At the resort it turns from pavement to dirt. 3 or 4 miles up the dirt road you will see the two large granite towers a couple hundred feet off the road to the right. You can't miss them. Park on the side of the road, and look for a small cairn which marks the start of the climber's trail to the rock.

If you're bushwhacking and on a faint trail, you're taking the wrong way to the crag. The good trail starts approximately 100ft down the road past the rock, and is usually marked by a rock cairn. Use it! Nov 4, 2016

This place is super sweet. Really grippy feet but the rock isnt great quality. So much potential in this area for lots of routes to be put up. climbers trail is faint / non existent so be aware that you will be bush wacking to get to the routes. May 11, 2016
Agree that it is all about perspective. There are some chossy routes at Mores, but find the nice lines and have a good time. My only regret is that there's not more trad leads. Aug 9, 2013
Really that looks like choss!? Come to Canada...
Looks better than bouldering at Swan Falls and wondering if your gonna cut yourself on all the broken glass there. Rather climb 'granite choss' than dodging a lot of broken beer bottles.
Reynolds is fun. I wouldn't discount it. Jul 31, 2013

Dont pass this place up because its not City of Rocks quality granite. It's a good change of pace from the black cliffs and is definitely worth checking out in the heat of the summer. The Forest Service Websites lists the gate as being closed from October to June so definitely call ahead. Alternatively I've known people who just park at the gate and ride a bike the few miles along the dirt road in. May 25, 2013
It's all about perspective. The Black Cliffs are pretty chossy, but there are a few good lines in between piles. Same goes for Mores, but with less quantity. It's not the City, but IMO worth a trip from Boise when it's too hot in the valley and you don't have a lot of time. Feb 19, 2013

Mores? Really?
I guess Reynolds Creek is on the list, too.
I hope you have fun & all, but I'm gonna say choss.
I'd have to be shown some worthy. No harm meant.
Just what I've seen there. Feb 17, 2013
