In 1995 most of the initial climbing development took place on Mores Mountain. More recently, a new area on the east side of Mores Mountain right off the bike trail has seen development. The easiest known climb in the area is a 5.9, with many tougher climbs in the 5.10-5.11 range. Sandy Epeldi's Boise Climbs book is an excellent reference along with his web site.

|The current USGS quad is outdated for this area and does not show the Boise Front Road or picnic road to the Mores Mountain Campground. For this image, I traced the current road locations using aerial photographs laid on top of the older USGS quad.|
