Ten miles west of Shoshone is Salsberry Pass. Sheephead Mt. is a mile or two to the south. It is best to head about 30 degrees west of the peak and stay away from doing a bunch of up and down stuff that crossing a dozen ridges perpendicularly entails. After reaching the same latitude as the peak, pick one ridge and hike east to the summit.
