|The Pedestal Boulder
Easier and slightly less fun brother of Hat's Off. Start on two crimps on the left side of the boulder with your feet on the low block. Move up and slightly right using 1-2 finger crimp and some better holds. Finish up on the arete/face. Top out can be a bit perplexing.

It has been a while, and I might not have used the stated starting holds, but this problem felt V4-ish to me.

If you are taller this problem could def be v4ish but if you can't reach the jug from the giant foot under the boulder it gets real nasty.

I definitely agree. I was stuck on this problem for so long (and I'm about 5'7). I ended up going left hand to the 2-3 finger pocket, heel hooked the starting left hand piece and was able to gain the jug and top out.
