Go to grandparent state with ui-router

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

With ui-router I can use $state.go('^') to go to parent state without having to specify it’s full path. Is there similar way to go to grandparent state (my parent state is abstract)?

In documentation examples I can see only ^ for parent, but maybe someone has good solution for this?
