DLS Presents an evening with Aron Ralston


Union South  Varsity Hall


In 2003, Aron Ralston's story made headlines worldwide. After being pinned by a half-ton boulder for nearly a week in a remote three-foot-wide slot in a canyon in southern Utah, Ralston narrowly escaped death by severing his right forearm with a dull pocketknife. After applying a tourniquet, he hiked and rappelled for five hours before searchers in a helicopter miraculously rescued him. Ralston documented the life-altering experience and his remarkable will to survive in his New York Times best-selling book, Between a Rock and a Hard Place and his story has been adapted into a movie titled 127 Hours.
