Definitions:

Grasshopper(G): Moves along Q-lines over another unit of either color to the square immediately beyond that unit. A capture may be made on arrival, but the hurdle is not affected.

Interesting, but a pity that neither grasshopper move during the solution !

This problem has a drawback which is somewhat traditional for the genre.

Both white and black play their own game until the final move, when you, at last, may see some interaction between sides.

I do not like such problems.
