Featuring Alex Honnold ("Free Solo") and a narration by Peter Sarsgaard, "Valley Uprising" lets viewers inside the shady campgrounds of Yosemite valley, where 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.

  • Passion

    By Capt. Capuchin
    I’m a coach and constant climber for the USA and when I first watched this movie along side Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright themselves, the amount of joy I experienced was beyond what I thought I was going to feel. I love this movie and cannot express how significant it is that you watch this history. If you climb or have any appreciation for the outdoors and love for Yosemite, watch this!!
