Shoshoni has a flat-topped summit, easily reached by hiking cross-country from the Pawnee Pass Trail. However, its southern ramparts loom over the Isabelle Glacier, with both rock and snow climbs to attempt. Several snow climbs in the couloirs above the glacier can be found in Gerry Roach's guide to the Indian Peaks.
Park at Long Lake trailhead. Walk about four miles, passing Isabelle Lake, to reach the climbs. Allow about two hours.
