2016 is the centennial year of Yosemite's National Park Service and to celebrate we're hosting an evening dedicated to the splendours of Yosemite, California.
The evening's entertainment includes:
In association with The North Face we have a guest speaker, (still to be confirmed) who will share their stories of climbing in the granite mecca that is Yosemite valley. Most climbers dream and aspire to climb in America's most famous national park, spending days hanging out 3000 feet above the valley floor. An Evening with Yosemite will fuel your passion for adventure in one of the world's most awesome playgrounds.
In addition to the guest lecture we are very excited to announce we will be screening the multiple award winning film VALLEY UPRISING: about the epic history of climbing in Yosemite National Park.
This is one of the best climbing films we have seen in a long time; riveting, engaging, funny, awe inspiring with a great story to tell, it's a film not to be missed!!
For the past fifty years, Yosemite’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 in the dirt, clashing with the 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. Narrated by Peter Sarsgaard, the film features digitally-animated archival photography, spectacular climbing footage and interviews with Yosemite greats
