In fortifications, redoubts are works constructed within others, in order to prolong their defense, or afford a retreat for troops. The feature was named by interprovincial boundary survey of Wheeler and Cautley in 1921.

The peak was first climbed in 1927 by F.H. Slark and F. Rutis, who met with a fatal accident on descending. Their bodies were never found.
