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.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
