Paul and his dog Karma have lived on the road chasing the hardest, most aesthetic bouldering in North America for over 6 years.

We’ve all seen them, or even done it ourselves. Van dwelling and road tripping is embedded into climbing culture. What would inspire someone to forgo the usual path, to do things differently, to let the road be their home, not just for a trip but for the long term? Meet Paul Nadler. Sponsored athlete, philosopher, web developer, traveller. An archetypal strong, silent type. Paul and his dog Karma have lived on the road chasing the hardest, most aesthetic bouldering in North America for over 6 years. Experience the world of climbing through Paul’s eyes.

Alex Savage first picked up a camera to share his passion of rock climbing to a greater audience. Since those early days he has precisely and artistically honed his craft, producing multiple independent short and feature length rock climbing and mountain biking films. Alex continues to travel to remote areas in search of beauty on the rock and through the lens.
