Fun boulder problem that is located in the Highlands Bouldering area just past the Giant Forest Museum.
From the Giant Forest Museum take the Round Meadow trail. This trail is a loop if you start on the left trail once at the backside where the trail turns to head back go off trail and head straight for about 500 yards. You will pass a very large fallen Sequoia tree, once you pass that look left and you will see the Highland Boulders. The Time Off Boulder is the last large boulder you pass before reaching the enourmous Elephant Rock (aka School of Hard Rocks in the SEKI guide).
Route starts on the obvious large jug and works its way up a series of slanting seams with good holds and fun moves. Top out can be a bit mossy and the boulder tops out at about 20 feet so caution should be taken towards the top.
Crash Pad and spotter.
