Movie Info

In the shady campgrounds of Yosemite valley, climbers carved out a counterculture lifestyle of dumpster-diving and wild parties that clashed with the conservative values of the National Park Service. And up on the walls, generation after generation has pushed the limits of climbing, vying amongst each other for supremacy on Yosemite's cliffs. "Valley Uprising" is the riveting, unforgettable tale of this bold rock climbing tradition in Yosemite National Park: half a century of struggle against the laws of gravity -- and the laws of the land.

Audience Reviews for Valley Uprising

Great documentary about the history of rock climbing that started in Yosemite Valley. For an era that had little more than photographs, the film uses decent effects to make the images come to life. Later, the film footage is spectacular. Especially some of the modern day scenes of extreme sports make you dizzy with vertigo even on your couch. An interesting story, slightly biased towards the rebel figures as opposed to authorities, but well worth the watch anyway.
