50m, 2 pitches. A somewhat contrived exploit with ‘six appeal’ for Odyssey Area enthusiasts, it seeks out and links up the exhilarating foot-traverse visited by both Thesaurus and The Minor Tour variation. 2nd should be equally able.
P1 35 m 5c Start right of Aeolus, at the right-hand end of the low overlap. Climb to the flowstone, in-situ thread out left, then pass the bulge with a bouldery sequence. Clip a long sling to the high peg on Ulysses P2 to protect the 2nd, then reverse the traverse of that route for 2 m. Perplexing upwards moves then gain a vertical finger jam slot and a welcome good cam. Hand traverse right to a niche on Song of the Sirens, excellent high wire. Step down 1-2 m, then hand traverse boldly rightwards (but with good holds) past a rock scar, aiming for an in-situ thread above the slippery slab. 2 m further right, use a layaway to gain the footledge, then sketch rightwards to an old bolt and back-up wire (as for Thesaurus). Continue the ‘heart in mouth’ foot traverse until it is possible to lasso the peg on The Minor Tour with a thin sling. Continue as for the variation, but belay at the top of the runnel of The Odyssey P2 using good gear in solution holes.
P2 15 m Scramble carefully out (as for the Odyssey).
