It v1 or so but seems harder due to exposure/consequenses.
The climber in the pic is just past the crux.

pretty much right in the center of the main area.
the boulder pictured is just across from the popular warm up boulder w/ lightning bolt, etc.

Um, if you think "The Master" is highball you should try the one to its left "Olivers Travels" - 30+....Both are great fun!

If you could only climb in one state on the east for the rest of your life make it WV. Coopers Rock has the highest quality boulders anywhere with the most badass highballs (but with clean flat landings) such as Twist Da Hick v5, mountaineers route v5, to the downright scary tall slightly overhung fingerlockin Electric Avenue v4. Then head South and hit up the New River Gorge. As John Sherman said, "the New would be a bouldering mecca if not for all those damn cliffs!" Check out Hawk's Nest at the NRG. More highball problems than you could ever know what to do with on the most perfect bulletproof sandstone. Check out Wingspan v4, Shark fin v2 or v4, White Eyebrow v7, Breast Arete v5, I could really go on forever...
Both areas have pretty good guide books and plenty of fun stuff around them as well. Coopers Rock is located outside WVU, which was the #1 party school in the nation last year and has been in the top ten forever if that's your style. Lots of cool stuff, good restaurants, an awesome scene for climbers. The NRG climbs are all centered around the town of Fayetteville, WV which has been voted one of america's coolest small towns and was in climbings top ten climbing towns to live in.
Now I hope WV qualifies as SE for you. If so, that's where you need to be.
