Tactical Grace

Ben Smith's Blasting Cap V8 on Doghouse Boulder flies under the radar, but it actually checks all the boxes when it comes to an ideal project:

☑ Multiple consistent moves
☑ Skin friendly
☑ Interesting beta
☑ Ground workable
☑ Safe landing
☑ Low crux
☑ Pleasant approach

This problem is actually an ideal project in the V8 range compared to a lot of what is on offer in Nova Scotia. I suspect it get's over looked because of the cryptic hand sequence for the crux. There are endless combinations of how you could hold the unique quartz inclusion and it's very hard to tell which is correct. This send was a little desperate after a tiring search for the correct sequence amidst deteriorating conditions.
