Redoubt Mountain (alternatively Mount Redoubt) is a mountain located in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada. It forms the southern buttress of Boulder Pass.

The mountain was named in 1908 by Arthur O. Wheeler, founding member of the ACC, as it resembled a redoubt (an outer military defense).[1]

The mountain can be climbed on a moderate to difficult scrambling route on the northwestern ridge.[4]
