Ron Kauk

Yosemite climber Ron Kauk was born in Redwood City, California. 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 shifting his path to a different venue. He chose the way of nature and moved to Yosemite at age 17. Together, he and his climbing contemporaries explored Yosemite Valley and beyond, venturing into the granite domes of Tuolumne Meadows and down into the eastern Sierra. Kauk has expanded the sport’s horizons and he considers climbing as a way of life that furthers his respect for Yosemite and Mother Earth. He formed a vision from these experiences, which he turned into Sacred Rok, a nonprofit that seeks the wisdom of nature’s way, and brings young people into Yosemite and the great outdoors to help show them how to balance their lives with the natural world.
