Description 

A jug haul on the corner just left of Lefty Crack. Could maybe go on gear but would be a bit spicy perhaps. We set up a trad anchor for top-roping in the horizontal crack used for an anchor on Lefty Crack. Found on a very wet day when the shaded "hard" routes on Lovely weren't good for projecting. The sunny side of the boulder was dry. So named because the party's dog took off and the only person on the ground not belaying couldn't speak English. Poor communication and a lot of charades ensued.

Location 

Get on top of the tower by any fun means. Bring up 3-4 mid-size cams and set up a top rope just over the arete in the horizontal crack. Make sure you equalize it well. Start on jugs, and pull the various little roofs and bulges til you reach the top.

Protection 

several medium-larger cams for an anchor in the horizontal crack up top. You will need to lead up another route to safely set this up, perhaps Lefty Crack is a good option, since you have cams on you ;-)

This climb makes you happy to be alive. Huge holds and big moves galore. If you don't like one pocket, try the one right next to it, they are all brilliant...
