This is one of my favorite boulder problems at High Cliff. I don't know who the made the FA, but I call it Harappan Civilization.

It is located about 20 feet left of Calm like a Bomb. The climb starts where some graffiti is. It reads "Tumot off" or something like that.

Start on the white colored rock down and to the left of this graffiti. Work your way up and over the roof. It can just end when you are standing above the roof.


The landing is pretty bad on this route. And because you are pulling the roof, a spotter and some pads are helpful.

Good problem. I'd say it's right on at V4

Agreed with James, hard is right. I have now given this thing like 20 attempts not counting working moves. I'm giving it V4+ when I send LOL.

No way is this thing remotely V3.
