Reel Rock Tour 9 – Valley Uprising

Valley Uprising comes to South Africa!  Years in the making, Valley Uprising is the latest feature-length documentary from Sender Films, in collaboration with Big UP Productions, that brings the wild history of climbing in Yosemite Valley to the big screen.

REEL ROCK 9 will feature Valley Uprising, which follows the evolution of climbing and the birth of a lifestyle in this legendary national park. In the spirit of John Muir and Jack Kerouac, generations of beatniks and madmen have dropped out of society to take up a life of rock climbing in Yosemite.

Always in trouble with the park authorities, each generation carries the torch to constantly redefine the limits of human possibility on these massive granite walls. Valley Uprising is the ultimate climbing origins story: half a century of struggle against the laws of gravity – and the laws of the land.
