This thesis aims to find Aron’s self-discovery as a main character in the novel Between A Rock and A Hard Place. This study focuses on the Aron’s journey in his desire for conducting outdoor activities. This study uses descriptive qualitative method to more detail about analysis. The data are obtained entirely from the novel. The researcher uses Soren Kierkegaard existentialism theory in order to find out Aron existence aspects of the novel and applies new criticism as supporting theory. The result of the study shows that Aron finds his self-discovery from the three stages of his life. Aesthetic stage is portrayed by Aron’s desire in conducting outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, climbing and rafting. The ethical stage of Aron’s life is depicted when Aron is aware and knows himself to face the difficulties in Canyonlands. The religious stage is described on spiritual journey of Aron when he connected to God for his chance to continue his life and be a better person.
