Thanks to Kevin Altheim for adding this peak.

Gusty peak is the unofficial name for the mountain that sits between Mount Galatea and The Fortess in the Kananaskis Range. It is a mountain with 2 faces in which the south slopes are all loose scree and the north slopes are steeper solid slabs.

The scrambling route goes up the south slopes and is generally a scree slog. It is approached using the Chester Lake Trail off the Spray Lakes Road, then once you reach Chester Lake take the right valley which leads to the south slopes and also The Fortress.
