Valley Uprising: Yosemite’s Rock Climbing Revolution

HD digital download available at Vimeo on Demand now!

Fresh off winning Grand Prizes at both the Banff Mountain Film Festival and the Kendal Mountain Film Festival, Valley Uprising is now available as a DVD, BluRay or digital download.

Valley Uprising is the epic history of the Yosemite rock climbers. For the past fifty years, Yosemite Valley’s massive cliffs have drawn explorers and madmen to leave materialism behind and venture onto the high, lonesome granite.

The larger-than-life characters of Yosemite carved out an “extreme bohemian” lifestyle in the Valley, living on red wine and boiled potatoes, clashing with National Park authorities, and pioneering the boldest climbs on Earth. The torch has been passed across three generations of climbers; through rivalries, tragedies and triumphs, the art of Yosemite climbing has advanced beyond anyone’s imagination. 

Valley Uprising is Sender Films' magnum opus in the vertical realm, telling the riveting, unforgettable tale of this bold tradition: half a century of struggle against the laws of gravity — and the laws of the land.

Starring Dean Potter, Alex Honnold, Lynn Hill, Jim Bridwell, Royal Robbins, Warren Harding, Yvon Chouinard, John Bachar, Tommy Caldwell and more...

The download comes loaded with 53 minutes of great bonus content, including:

  • Alex Honnold free soloing in Yosemite

  • Deleted Scene -- The Golden Age of Big Wall exploration
