Gusty Peak peak is located northwest of The Fortress, southeast of Mount Galatea, and northeast of Chester Lake, and was ascended in 1972 by Glen Boles on a very windy day.
It has a big northeast face similar in character to Mount Galatea and The Tower, although not as steep. The mountain can easily be scrambled on the south slopes which consist mostly of scree, and that route is detailed in Alan Kane's Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies guidebook. The south aspect of Gusty Peak can be approached from Chester Lake in the Kananaskis.
The north and east aspects can be approached from the Fortress Lake Trail starting from the Fortress Ski Hill.
