Valley Uprising, the history of rock climbing in Yosemite Valley, USA

17.06.2014 by Planetmountain

The trailer of Valley Uprising, the documentary that retraces the history of rock climbing in Yosemite Valley, USA.

Half a century of battles, not only against the laws of gravity but also, at times, against the laws of the land. We're talking about Valley Uprising, the film that documents how climbing developed and evolved in Yosemite valley, from the early pioneers of the Golden Era such as Royal Robbins, Warren Harding and Yvon Chouinard to the Stone Masters led by Jim Bridwell past icons such as Lynn Hill and her free ascent of The Nose all the way to the present day Monkeys such as Dean Potter and Alex Honnold. This documentary is part of the next Reel Rock Tour and promises to become an instant classic. With such a rich history, it's easy to understand why "the fire still burns" in Yosemite.
