Ron Kauk

Yosemite climber Ron Kauk was born in Redwood City, Calif. During a backpacking trip in his youth, he was transfixed by the beauty of climbing. Kauk was faced with the choice of continuing with his formal education, or moving his education to a different venue. He chose the path of nature and moved to Yosemite at age 17. Together, he and his rock-climbing contemporaries have explored Yosemite Valley and beyond, venturing into the granite domes of the high country in Tuolumne Meadows and down into the eastern Sierras. Kauk has expanded the sport’s horizons and he considers climbing as a way of life that furthers his respect for Yosemite. He 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.
