Mothman (V8)

Climbs the left arete of the large roadside boulder. Start left handed on a lumpy pocket and right hand low on a slopey bulge. With a bad foot smear, slap up, right-handed for a dimple on the arete that will be easier to hang on to than it might appear. Grab the big sideways-facing sloper jug with your left hand, then kick you heal high onto the arete. A bad crimp for your right hand is followed my an exponentially worse one. Use these and a lot of faith in your spotter(s) to gain the flat lip up high. Great climbing on flawless blue basalt.
