Just Read The Instructions

I went out to Eggs today to clean up a few of the missing videos. Specifically, I was hoping to find The Runaround V8. Unfortunately, there was no picture included in the original topo, so all I had to go on was the description:

Hard start from small crimps to top.

I circled around the boulder, found the most obvious small crimps, and climbed to the top. Trouble is - I left with my fingertips intact. When G-Money mixes "hard start" "small crimps" and "V8" together, I'm expecting fingertip amputating seriousness. 

I ended up with an accidental first ascent which I'm calling Just Read the Instructions V4. It's a pretty obvious line, and cements Eggs the highest concentration of V3 - V5 lines in mainland Nova Scotia. 

The The Runaround V8 remains a mystery...
