y' inspection
B L F R' F' D R' D'// cross
y' R U2 R' U' L' U L// first pair

U R U R' U' R' F R F'// OLL
PLL skip
Fixed. Also, you could do the first pair as L' U L2 U' L' (you could write it as (L' U L) (L U' L') if that makes it clearer how it works).

E: too slow

E: too slow
I don't know why I did it that way, I would probably normally do the L' U L2 U' L', but for some reason I did it like that, and if i did the 1st pair like that, I wouldn't have got the PLL skip. (4.77) TPS.
Also, I am slow :p

For my BLD method (OP/OP) and my orientation (W/G) this scramble was really hard.

The memo included 4 extra letters from the average edge memo. And 2 extra for the average corner memo.

I got this scramble as the 2nd cube in a 4 cube multiblind. The result was 2/4, but surprisingly, I solved this cube.
