Event Description

Aron Ralston
127 Hours: Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Aron Ralston was hiking alone in remote Utah canyons when an 800-pound boulder tumbled loose, pinning his right hand and wrist. Trapped for six days, warding off dehydration and hypothermia, his remarkable will to live led him to commit an extreme act of survival. Using a dull multi-tool, Ralston severed his forearm, rappelled a 65-foot cliff and hiked for five hours before being rescued. His life-altering story is documented in the best-selling book, Between a Rock and a Hard Place, and the movie, 127 Hours. Aided by prosthetic devices that he helped design, Ralston inspires perseverance as he continues his adventurous lifestyle.
