There are many such places. Aron Ralston went to Utah as just another rock jock; he emerges as a Gen X action hero. Daily News -Sherryl Connelly.

About the Author - Aron Ralsted - Aron Ralston grew up in the Midwest before moving to Colorado when he was twelve, a place where he became an avid outdoorsman. In 2002, he gave up a career as a mechanical engineer in New Mexico and moved to Aspen, Colorado, where among other things he continued his attempt to climb the fifty-nine Colorado peaks of more than 14,000 feet solo in winter (he's more than three-quarters through).
In the final part of our serialisation of his harrowing tale, Aron Ralston recalls the last hours of his ordeal in the Utah wilderness. After six days trapped by the boulder, he at last found the courage and the means to sever his crushed hand and free himself.
In the book, Aron Ralston is plagued by one-upmanship syndrome. The book should be a guide to avoiding wedging your arm between stones in desolate wilderness.
Sep 09, 2008 Michael rated it it was ok. Shelves: non-fiction, travel-adventure. In the book, Aron Ralston is plagued by one-upmanship syndrome.

I would I have read a few Mountaineering books, and as a all around wilderness junkie, I was quite unsettled by this book.
