Redemption Mountains is a location in Red Dead Redemption.


The mountains are north of New Austin and west of West Elizabeth. They form a physical barrier that blocks the player, thereby defining the northern edge of the playable map. The only portion of the mountains that the player can enter is in the northern edge of Tall Trees where Nekoti Rock and Cochinay are located.

This location cannot be "discovered" by the player and does not count towards 100% Completion.


Nothing is known about the Redemption Mountains and they are not referred to by name within the game. They are only labeled on the paper map that comes with physical copies of the game.


In Gaptooth Ridge, the mountains begin as steep cliffs north of locations such as Silent Stead and Rathskeller Fork. Moving east into Cholla Springs the range continues along the northern border above Rattlesnake Hollow and Twin Rocks. A tunnel for the red line train cuts through the mountains between Cholla Springs and Hennigan's Stead.

North of Hennigan's Stead, a valley extends into the mountains at a location that factors into the Undead Treasure Hunter challenges. The mountains define the northern border of Henningan's Stead until the river that separates Hennigan's Stead from Tall Trees, north of Tanner's Span.

The river has its source in the Redemption Mountains north of Aurora Basin. In Tall Trees, the mountains enter the playable area for the first time with locations such as Nekoti Rock and Cochinay. The impassable portion of the mountains forms both the western and northern border of Tall Trees.


  • Players can easily climb the mountain between Cochinay and the road leading to it.
  • The mountains are analogous to the real world Rocky Mountains, rising steeply to the west of the plains and north of the desert areas.
  • Without the use of mods or glitches, it is impossible to get up past the mountain's limit. Since the patch was placed in the glitch in the train tunnel to get onto the mountains has been reduced from a high success rate to a decimal.
  • The glitch to get on top of the mountains, when successfully done means that the player can shoot any other online player in the map as long as they have dead eye or a sniper rifle.
