Scrambling Routes
Moderate/difficult scrambling via northwest ridge. The northwest ridge of Mount Redoubt grants good scrambling in grand surroundings. As usual, though, a certain amount of scree-bashing is involved. The view toward Mount Temple is stunning. Kane, Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies page 255
