The Reel Rock Tour is coming back to the Tyneside Cinema on Monday 29th December with the latest instalment of the series, featuring the full-length documentary Valley Uprising.

Seven years in the making, Valley Uprising tells the story of climbing in Yosemite National Park, a tale including epic rivalries, ground-breaking ascents and battles with the authorities. The documentary is divided into three separate parts, each documenting a section of Yosemite’s climbing history. Part One, The Golden Age, examines the early days of the 50s and 60s, when the now-legendary climbers embarked on many incredible first ascents. The Stonemasters moves on to the seventies, where a new generation of climbers attempt to outdo their predecessors and etch their own names into the history books. The final section, The Stone Monkeys, moves the story along into the new century, where the titular heroes have taken up the climbing mantle and are attempting to achieve feats never seen before.

Reel Rock 9 screens at the Tyneside Cinema on Monday 29th December.
