Aron Ralston net worth: Aron Ralston is an American mountaineer, outdoorsman, and motivational speaker who has a net worth of $4 million dollars. Aron Ralston was born in Marion, Ohio, and grew up in Denver, Colorado. He went on to graduate from Carnegie Mellon University with degrees in Mechanical Engineering and French. After working as a mechanical engineer at Intel for a number of years, he decided to leave that life behind, and moved to Colorado to focus on mountain climbing. His goal was to climb the "fourteneers", fifty-nine mountains in Colorado that are all over 14,000 feet high. In 2005, he became the first person to climb all of them solo and in the winter. In 2003, while on a solo climb, he became trapped by a boulder. After five days, he realized that the only way to free himself was to cut off his own arm. He broke the bones of his arm and amputated it using a pocket-knife, then rappelled down a cliff face, and hiked his way out of the canyon. His ordeal was later turned into the Oscar-nominated film, "127 Hours" starring James Franco. Aron now works primarily as a motivational speaker.
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.
The incident is documented in Ralston's autobiography Between a Rock and a Hard Place and is the subject of the 2010 film 127 Hours.


Ralston was born on October 27, 1975, in Marion, Ohio. He and his family moved to Denver when he was age 11. He is a graduate of Cherry Creek High School in Greenwood Village, Colorado. He received his college degree from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, finishing with degrees in mechanical engineering and French, with a minor in piano. At Carnegie Mellon, he served as a resident assistant, studied abroad, and was an active intramural sports participant. He left his job as a mechanical engineer with Intel in Phoenix, Arizona, in 2002 and moved to Aspen, Colorado in order to pursue a life of climbing mountains.
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). He subsequently achieved this goal in 2005. In 2003, Aron was caught in a Grade 5 avalanche on Resolution Peak, Colorado with his hiking partners Mark Beverly and Chadwick Spencer. Nobody was seriously injured.
In August 2009, Ralston married Jessica Trusty. His first child, Leo, was born in February 2010. Jessica asked for a divorce in February 2012, and filed in March 2012. Ralston started dating Vita Shannon in April 2012 after meeting her on a plane while sitting next to each other in March 2012.
On April 26, 2003, Aron Ralston was hiking through Blue John Canyon,
