Mount Galatea is perhaps the biggest challenge among the scrambling peaks in the Smith-Dorien area of the CDN Rockies. Guidebooks describe it as more mountaineering than a simple scramble. The mountain's size, its relative steepness and snow lignering for a long time even on the south slopes make it a formidable outing. The upper part of the summit ridge presents some technical difficulties and harbours ice well into the summer. The north-east face of the mountain is a supposedly unclimbed 1600 m rockwall, which, if the information is verified, would make it one of the highest unlimbed faces in the CDN Rockies.
Access to Mt. Galatea is the same as access to Mt. Fortress and Mt. Chester; from the Smith Dorien road. The starting altitude for this climb is at about 1900 m, making it a 1285 vertical relief if you summit. A worthwhile trip later in the summer - watch for bears on the alpine meadows.
