Solve Path[edit | edit source]

The answer can be obtained via following the directions, but solvers may need to be mindful of some details. For example, not all Greek letters get shifted, and since Step 9 happens before Step 9.5, after reaching Step 9.5 for the first time, solvers do Step 4 next rather than Step 3.

Below are some partial confirmations for the first few times Step 9.5 is reached (excluding the final one).
