Mount Galatea 3185 m

Mount Galatea is a nice peak located in the vicinity of Chester Lake. We will attempt the South Face of Mt Galatea. This is a snow face and is considered a moderate mountaineering route. If conditions on the face are poor we will ascend the scrambles route to the climbers right. Kane rates this as a difficult scramble. We will leave fairly early on Thursday morning. Meet at Shouldice Arena 4:30 am. Earlier the better. Look for a grey Toyota Matrix. Approach to the peak is made by hiking to Chester Lake and continuing past the lake on a good trail. Must be a paid member and waivers must be completed before departure. Max group size is 4

Required gear:

Ice axe

Crampons

Harness

Helmut

2 locking biners

And personal gear suitable for a mountaineering objective. Lots I water, sunscreen and hiking poles for the descent.
