Happy New Year! 2022 is going to be a blast for our little team. Without further ado, it's time for an update from the film crew of Topping Out! It isn't a long update, however we wanted to touch base since we haven't chatted in a while!
We have 3 updates for you. Read on to see what's happening!

That's it for now! Rest assured, there will be plenty of other updates in the future. In the meantime, please enjoy your holidays and be safe!
This newsletter serves as not only an update to the film's progress, but also a community building tool. There are many people subscribed who are not involved in the climbing community, who may not know much about filming, or are simply people who want to support an independent film about a group of amazing people.
Thank you for your support, and we will be in touch soon!
