This film chronicles the various stages of climbing culture (or counterculture..) and progression of the sport in the Yosemite Valley, all the way from the 1950s to the present day. It’s hard to come away from this film not feeling inspired, with amazing footage of climbs in the valley and colorful personalities of the climbers as they compete for climbing domination!
From IMDB: 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.
