The route to Gunnshy peak is a Class 3 and involves exposed scrambling. Gear and experience are recommended.
Gunnshy Peak is the second-highest mountain in the Wild Sky Wilderness, falling just short of Gunn Peak, less than one mile to the east. There is no official route to Gunnshy Peak, though a climbers path does exist, beginning at a spur road near the Barclay Lake Trailhead. After following the spur road towards a fire pit, you will see a faint climber's path headed east into the forest that will lead you most of the way towards the summit.
