Alex Savage Is Green In The Face

Alex Savage‘s roadtrip around the western U.S. rolls on as he seeks out problems to film for his upcoming movie Western Gold.  His latest stop found him in Idaho’s Castle Rocks State Park to check out Craig Hurst’s Green In The Face, a crimpy V13 that climbs up a stunning wall of green streaked rock.

In the most recent post on his blog Savage shares pictures and the story of his recent efforts on the problem that resulted in a couple of near sends…and a buried truck.  After taking a few days to recuperate he was able to return to the boulder and complete its likely 3rd ascent.  Look for the footage in Western Gold some time in the coming months.

Update: More on the send here

    Er, where in that post did he say he did the problem? It concluded with ” I get one more day of nothing while I wait for the good weather that should be here on Monday to attempt solo mission #3 on Green in the Face. Hopefully all the rest will make my fingers feel like champions but we will see…”
