Yosemite in a Day


YOSEMITE IN A DAY from Cedar Wright on Vimeo.

Video by Cedar Wright - I was invited to give a presentation at the Yosemite Facelift 2010, a park-wide clean-up event originally started by climbers and spearheaded by Ken Yager. The Facelift is now the largest national park clean-up in the country and has moved beyond just climbers to people from all walks of life! For my last few slideshows, I showed up a day early to shoot and edit a short video that I show as part of my presentation. I feel like it's a unique and original element of my show, and people are psyched to see something created in real time! However, the amount of work that this entails is pretty ridiculous, and usually at around five a.m. after a sleepless night of editing, I swear that I will never do it again. This particular "In A Day" installment features some of Yosemites top "unheard of" climbers, an overview of the Facelift, and Yosemite's best climber crushing blood from the stone!!
