3/7/08: Between a Rock and a Hard Place

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – As a mountaineer and avid outdoorsman, Aron Ralston had come to believe that what we do in life defines who we are. In April of 2003, this sense of adventure brought Ralston to a remote canyon in Southern Utah, where in one flash his wrist became pinned to the canyon wall. After days of trying to free himself, Aron Ralston severed his right arm with a dull multi-tool and saved himself. Aron Ralston will be in Utah this evening, and today we're rebroadcasting an earlier conversation with him. (Rebroadcast)

This evening at 7:30, Aron Ralston will speak and give a slide show at the Eccles Center in Park City. The event is a fundraiser for the Great Old Broads for Wilderness. For tickets and information, click here or call 435-655-3114.
