Scrambling Routes
Easy ascent via south scree slopes. Gusty Peak is another easily-ascended peak near scenic Chester Lake and it sits close to Mounts Chester, Galatea and The Fortress. Many more parties ascend it these days but it is still noticeably less crowded than Mount Chester. The view is fine and problems are few. Try from July on.
