My long time climbing partner and friend Miguel Carmona (Spaniard living in Los Angeles) and I sat at the base of the pillar and hapilly argued about how to climb it. He wanted to go up the face which would have required a bit of drilling (and would have been harder, maybe even more aesthetic line), I wanted to do the line we ended up doing (more crack climbing, no bolts used). So Miguel got even with me after the climb, he asked to name the route and jokingly,came up with the name.(I was born in Prague, Czech Republic).
There are several recent routes on that (shorter) part of the South Face, all on very good rock, all good climbing.
