Here is a teaser for Project Mina, following Mina Leslie-Lujastyk, with all the Highs and Lows of life as a professional climber.

No, but I have often wondered why people capitalize random nouns, like "climber."

Hah, I agree with JT, but didn't want to be the first one to say it. Pretty sure it takes dedication, hard work, yadda yadda yadda... That's what we'll get from the film anyway.

Now, if the film were to detail how the climber approached her sponsors, signed a deal with them, what her contract requires of her, what the sponsors do for her; now THAT might be interesting. But I don't think that's what we're going to get.

This film doesn't look any different from any other climbing movie about an "up and coming" comp climber I've never heard of.

+1
That indeed would be a very different and very welcome kind of climbing film
