Ron draws from his wide range of experiences in climbing, which include bouldering (first ascent of Midnight Lightning), long routes (first free ascent of Astroman), and mountaineering (first ascent East Face of Uli Biaho, Pakistan). Ron formed a vision from these experiences, which he turned into Sacred Rok, a nonprofit that seeks the wisdom of nature’s way, bringing young people into the world of Yosemite.
