White Shores climbs an enjoyable white slab found on the far right side of the crag. Place a few pieces of gear to get started and undercling to the left to the first bolt. There are a number of mini cruxes, but the height dependent one at the second bolt might get you thinking.

Rap from a 2 bolt anchor with chains....


White Shores is found on the rightmost shoulder of Sweat Loaf.


A #0.5, #2, and #3 Camalot for the start...then clip bolts.

Gillett gives this 3 stars, but I'd say 2, since it's still pretty dirty. The undercling left at the start was pretty exciting. If you're tall enough, the crux at the second bolt is not the crux. You can place a #0.75/Green Camalot and a ~1/4" nut (blue HB Offset) to protect clipping the 4th bolt, which seemed placed a bit too high even for me at 6'2. I was able to stand on the base of the sketchy small try and stretch to clip. Feb 22, 2009

Apparently it has cleaned up a bit. I'd give it 3 stars, as it was a good 1/2 rope length (maybe just over 90 feet) super solit rock, and persistent moves to give pause. Great slab overall. In fact, if I enjoyed single pitch climbing more, I'd consider giving it 4 stars.
Note: The small pine tree shown in the book topo is dead rotten and gone. Apr 3, 2009
