A Plane Crashed In 1977 Filled With 6 Tonnes Of Super Strong Pot. Here’s What Happened When Climbers Found It…

Never smoke weed soaked in petrol. You may explode...

The crew over at Outside Magazine just posted up this clip from climbing film Valley Uprising.

It’s an amazing tale of a plane that crashed in Yosemite National Park in 1977. It was flying from Colombia and was rammed to the rafters with six tonnes of super strong weed. Unsurprisingly, it was quickly raided by local climbers who thought they’d died and gone to ganja heaven.

The film itself is about the rise of climbing culture in Yosemite National Park during the 1970s, living an alternative lifestyle on the outskirts of society, throwing wild parties and tackling some of the hardest climbs in the world.

It’s already won a number of awards. You can watch the full film on Vimeo here.
