We expect the attempt to take anywhere between 100 and 110 hours' solve time, which could mean up to a month's worth of sessions in real time.

As for the method, we'll be using a variation of the cage method for this solve. Roughly outlined, the steps are:

1) Clearing the 1st/green center - Partially filling in columns of green pieces

2) Solving the remainder of the green center using the 4-move commutator r u' r' u

3) Clearing the 2nd/blue center - Partially filling in columns of blue pieces

4) Solving the remainder of the blue center using the 4-move commutator r2 u' r2 u

5) Solving the outer shell - edges and 3x3

6) Clearing the 3rd/orange center - Partially filling in columns of orange pieces

7) Solving the remainder of the orange center using the 4-move commutator r2 u' r2 u

8) Solving the 4th/yellow center

9) Solving the last two (red + white) centers

I've started the first bit of the solve. Progress so far, at just over 2 hours into the solve:
