The standard route up Little Galatea is from Chester Lake via a huge avalanche gully (obviously avalanche prone). The route we took is from Rummel Lake via an interesting ridge. I have to thank Marko for pointing out this route option. It makes perfect sense to combine this with Rummel Ridge to make a day. The approach is the same as Rummel Ridge. Just before dropping down to Rummel Creek, head directly south, uphill. Work your way through the trees and choose the least steep line. You might consider doing switchback for a few sections. But anyway, it's much steeper than Rummel Ridge. If you are a beginner snowshoeer, you might have some hard times. The section above treeline is very likely to be wind blown. If so, ditch your snowshoes at the treeline and start scrambling. You can follow the ridge all the way to the summit. Carry an ice axe and possibly crampon if icy, as there are two very steep slopes that you have to ascend. Be very careful about the cornices on your left. It is also possible to scramble up the west ridge of Mt. Galatea to the next high point, but again, you cannot reach the summit from this side.
