Redoubt Peak from the East
Redoubt is one of the peaks of the Ramparts, directly across from the Amethyst Lakes narrows. It is a very difficult peak and one would have to conclude it is dangerous. The original people who climbed it were F H. Slark and F Rutishauser, who both perished on the descent. Their summit record was found on the top the next summer (in 1928). See the Canadian Alpine journal report Ascents of Mts Redoubt and Casemate. Their bodies were never recovered. And then in 2012, long time bivouac editor Rich Gebert, a very experienced climber also died on Redoubt.

Name Notes: Named in 1920 because it has a similar appearance to a "redoubt" on a castle.
