Scrambling Routes
A difficult scramble via west-northwest ridge. Mount Engadine is one of the less-frequently climbed peaks bordering Spray Road and may appeal to the recluse. In 1987, it had seen five ascents in the previous 16 years, but it has seen many more since. Once you abandon the trail to gain the west-northwest ridge of the mountain, some tedious bushwhacking follows, but this is still the most direct way up. Try from late June on.
