2 move first block go go go.
1 move first block, not 2.

I got 10.10 with dots.

41. 11.92+ R2 U2 F2 U B2 R2 B2 L2 D' F2 R L U' F2 L' B2 L F D' F'
Cold hands + about four lockups on the U perm. Saw XX-cross in inspection. Second attempt was 7.73 :(
I am sooo bad at cross planning that I cannot see your "easy" XX-cross spotted in inspection. I assume that's something starting with (x2) R, which pairs up the blue-red while hiding the already paired up green-red but I cannot see an easy way to finish the xx-cross. Could you be so kind as to pointing it out for me?

Anyway, while playing with the scramble I came up with this "beautiful" solution with just a 17-move F2L and a PLL skip. Hope you like it!

(x2) // inspection
R' L U R u' U' F' D2 // Cross (8/35)
L U' L' // F2L#1 (11/35)
(y') R U' R' // F2L#2 (14/35)
(y') L' U L U' L' U' L // F2L#3 (21/35)
(y') U' L' U L // F2L#4 (25/35)
F R U' R' U' R U R' F' // OLL (34/35)
U // PLL skip (35/35)

This is what I planned (after a z2 inspection):
Cross is R D' R' (to place all the cross pieces) then D2 to correct the cross. This doesn't affect either the blue-red or the blue-green pairs.
L U L' would then solve the blue-red pair, and it also doesn't affect the green red pair. This means the green-red pair will still be where it is now, and the pieces are already paired up, which is nice. So you can solve that with L' U L U' F U' F'. There's also a cancellation between the blue-red and green-red pair which I saw too (L' L' -> L2).

I then inserted blue-orange and then green-orange. Easy COLL to recognise with no AUF needed (l' U' L U R U' r' F), and then a U perm.

Coming back from a year hiatus to post this

(3,-1) / (-2,-5) / (3,-4) / (3,-3) / (3,6) / (3,5) / (-5,-3) / (6,6) / (-3,-1) / (1,3) / (0,-3) / (-3,-3) / (-3,-3) / (6,3)



Solve:

Put it back to cube shape with the small bar on the left. (4,-3) / (-4,-1) / Adjust layers

A Square-1 scamble that turned out to be really easy: (-5, 0) / (0, -3) / (5, -4) / (-3, -3) / (4, -5) / (-3, 0) / (0, -4) / (6, -3) / (0, -3) / (-5, 0) / (5, -1) /

-2,0/-3,0/ :: Shape
3,1/ :: CO
0,3/-3,0/3,0/-1,-1/-2,1/3,0/ :: Special EO
-4,0/3,0/-3,-3/0,3/0,6 :: PBL (Permute Both Layers)
