What other terrain, besides crumbling and moldy walls, can the spell move mountains break through, if any?

Judging by BoE, those are the only ones, because they are the only ones marked "Crumbling terrain" in the default terrains in the editor, as far as I can tell. In Avernum, you can get certain rock terrains and stalagmites, too, but I'm not sure about Exile.

EDIT: My information may be a bit inaccurate, seeing as how I haven't actually played much with the Exile engine. I just posted this in the interest of getting a quick response, and someone with more detailed knowledge can come later.

Again judging by BoE, there could also be some ordinary walls that can crumble. I don't remember any in the Exile series, though.

You might try stalagmites that block your way.
On occasion, these are affected by the spell and may / may not be identified by green markings.
* I'd assume the green is an indicator of "mold" an as such make them "soft".

I don't remember any green stalagmites that could be Move Mountained in Exile. As far as I know, only the walls can be destroyed. There might be some regular-looking walls that can destroyed, but unless you wander around casting Shatter, they're probably not all that useful.

—Alorael, who went through all of E3 without destroying anything less obvious than damaged walls.

You're probably right; I'm wrong.
The green stalagmites were probably in a BoE scenario.
:( Too much on the mind for the size of the mind. :(

Actually, I distinctly remember, in the back way into the Nephilim Fort, west of Fort Ganrick (E2), there is a moldy stalagmite, which you can use move mountains on, behind it is a body with some equipment, if I remember correctly.

Never came across a moldy stalagmite in E3 though.

FBM is right there-
And in BoE it was very possible.
I thought that I used it in the "remote cavern" in E3 though-

It's possible. I definitely remember walking through some stalagmites in the Murder Cave and the Remote Cavern, but I can't remember breaking them.

—Alorael, who will blame his lack of memory on skribbane. It occupies the majority of his attention while he plays E3.
