Wasatch Classics: Noah Howell on The South Ridge of SuperiorSunday, November 12, 2017
The late great Alex Lowe ran it in 48 minutes. Or so legend has it. But since those days of yore, when speed demons like Lowe and Andrew McLean hucked lung-busting laps on the iconic South Ridge of Mount Superior, few have broken the elusive hour barrier. However, one of those few happens to be BD Athlete Noah Howell. A steep skier at heart, Howell stays fit in the summer months by pushing himself on the South Ridge. He’s still vying for that elusive FKT, but through the process he’s come to know the mountain intimately, while simultaneously developing a deep appreciation for this classic summer scramble.
