**Scramble:** L2 F L2 R2 B2 R2 B’ R2 F U2 L2 D B2 U’ F’ L’ B2 R’ U2 L2

**Solution:** L R B’ D’ B2 D2 F’ R U’ R’ U’ R’ F’ U F R’ U2 R U’ R U2 R’ (22 HTM)

**Explanation:**

L R B’ D’ B2 D2 F’ *//2x2x3 (7/7)*

R U’ *//Setup pair (2/9)*

R’ U’ R’ *//XXCross setup to EO (3/12)*

F’ U F *//EO (3/15)*

R’ U2 R *//Insert pair and do ALL THE BLOCKS FROM NOWHERE (3/18)*

U’ R U2 R’ *//FInish (4/22)*

**Comment:**

Comment by Vincent:

*After the 2x2x3, I experimented with different ways of putting the last cross edge in. My strategy was essentially Blockbuilding DFS looking for skips. Usually results in <30 or >40 (if I fail).*

Fun fact: in QTM, the solution beats the scramble 26 to 32 (wow!).

7 different people at the comp have found a 27 HTM solution, ending with Sune + PLL skip: can you fin it?
