Mount Engadine
Mount Engadine is located south of Buller Creek, northwest of The Tower, and east of the Smith Dorrien Spray Lakes Road. It forms the northwest end of the Kananaskis Range and like its neighbors has an impressive northeast face. There is a scrambling route which goes up the northwest ridge and is rated moderate. For access park at Buller Pond then follow the Buller Pass trail until it is feasible to bushwack up to NW ridge. The route can be scouted from the parking lot.

Although possibly removed after 2000, the summit is host to a repeater.

Name Notes: It was named in 1917 after the light battle cruiser HMS Engadine which participated in the Battle of Jutland during World War I.
