A gritty, generic friction route for the completionist only. Starting from orange ledges climb up and left via gritty scoops to pass very near the right edge of the Ulysses' Bivouac cave and then continues to the sub-summit above. Downclimb Business Trip or continue up the upper portion of Carolyn's Rump or Business Trip to the top of the rock.

  • All but one of the bolts is currently (October 2015) missing making this a top-rope problem.


Just right of Ulysses' Bivouac.


3 bolts, gear to 2.5 inches

There was, on the first ascent, a fixed pin before the first bolt which is gone now along with two of the three bolts.

This route (AKA Nightmare on Angione Street ) needs some love;....i need to take a look at it and see what it needs to be safe and sane for the lead. It is a route that does has some merit....

Let it die the nondescript shitty grainy death it deserves. Just say no to implanting more new hardware.
