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

Great Documentary
6 May 2020 | by anthonydapiiiSee all my reviews

Documentary's are my favorite. It's the sector I want to have a focus in them within filmmaking.

It was interesting to see the untold story of the rebellious, passionate nature of these rock climbers in nature.

And towards the end, it leaves a path to telling the next stories of the upcoming rock climbers that will dominant the world.

This goes to show: "If you want to be the best, you have to be closest to the sun (closest to the best).
