Learning to Fly
". . . Inducted into the Utah Skiing Hall of Fame and active into his 80's, he was one of the "old men" on the mountain. Lee was an experienced rock climber. He and five others were asked by the Salt Lake Sheriff's to be deputized and serve as the sheriff's first search and rescue team in the 1950's. He was a lifetime member of the Wasatch Mountain Club, and Steorts Ridge climbing route in Big Cottonwood Canyon is his namestake. . ." Fast_Eddie.

Sad to hear. But glad to have heard a little more about who Steort's ridge is named after.
