Aron 'I Gave Up My Right Arm To Be On The Simpsons' Ralstump
6' 1" (1.85 m)
Did You Know?
I limited myself to one shout a day. But I didn't like the sound of my voice. It sounded panicked, it sounded scared. And I knew from experience you can't hear more than 50 yards either way down a canyon.
April/May 2003: With no water and little hope of survival, Aspen mountaineer Aron Ralston used a pocketknife to amputate his own arm and free himself from a boulder weighing 800-1,000 pounds that fell and trapped him for five days in a remote desert canyon in eastern Utah. His story 'Between A Rock And A Hard Place' was later published by Simon & Schuster.
