Aron Ralston Aron Lee Ralston (born October 27, 1975) is an American outdoorsman, engineer and motivational speaker. He survived a canyoneering accident in south-eastern Utah in 2003, during which he amputated his own right forearm with a dull multi-tool in order to extricate himself from a dislodged boulder, underneath which he had been trapped for five days and seven hours. After he freed himself, he had to rappel down a 65 foot (20 m) sheer cliff face to reach safety.[1] Background[edit] Ralston was born on October 27, 1975, in Marion, Ohio. He and his family moved to Denver when he was age 11. He had the goal of climbing all of Colorado's "fourteeners" — peaks over 14,000 ft high, of which there are 59; solo and during winter (a feat that had never been recorded). In August 2009, Ralston married Jessica Trusty. Accident[edit] On April 26, 2003, Aron Ralston was hiking through Blue John Canyon, in eastern Wayne County, Utah, just south of the Horseshoe Canyon unit of Canyonlands National Park.
