The Rec Center will screen the film “Valley Uprising” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the Outdoor Pursuits Center.

The film focuses on generations of climbers in California’s Yosemite Valley, an area sought after by climbers for it’s rock faces, which all vary in difficulty and height.

The movie covers these climbers as they first scale the routes of Yosemite and leads viewers to contemporary climbers handling steep heights without safety nets.

The film shows mountains and climbing routes that are legendary to climbers around the United States.

One of the fiercest routes is called El Capitan, which is considered the best rock climb in the world.

“Valley Uprising” features a combination of archive photos, film footage and interviews with some of the people who braved the heights of Yosemite.

The Rec Center has more events planned for students in the upcoming months including a ski trip Feb. 20 to Feb. 22 at Timberline Ski Resort.

The movie is an hour and 40 minutes long and the program is free to members.

The Outdoor Pursuits Center is located in the ancillary section of the Rec Center, near the climbing wall.
