Despite Vs Still in Sentence

Can both of these be together in one sentence or will that create redundancy.

say like, "despite the warning he still climbed the mountain".

I would have to see the context but I think you could use the two together in the same sentence, especially if the still is there to emphasize that even despite x, he/she still did something...
