Storyline

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. Written by Sender Films

by far the best Yosemite alternative documentary
17 November 2014 | by giorgiob-894-686003See all my reviews

This movie is not only very detailed and technically post-produced in an amazing way, it is actually SUPER FUN. Actors aka climbers are so honest and spontaneous that you can't stop staring at them and laughing out loud.

The story of the touristic evolution of the Yosemite national park is quite astonishing and sad for certain aspects. It is a film about people, real human beings that will make you dream.

While watching this outstanding documentary you will feel the need to run pack your climbing gears and go training to get ready for the next adventure on those big walls... Dreaming is guaranteed.

Oh, by the way, adrenaline must run high during the movie; if you suffer of heart conditions, watch it with caution!
