VHLS

 VHLS Information Proposer(s): Lars Vandenbergh, Dan Harris Proposed: unknown Alt Names: VHF2L Variants: none Subgroup: unknown No. Algs: 32 Avg Moves: 6.63 (11.27 including setup moves for one slot) Purpose(s): Speedsolving

VHLS (short for Vandenbergh-Harris Last Slot) is a step of the Vandenbergh-Harris method that basically does the same thing as ZBLS using much fewer algorithmsâ€”the last slot is filled in while orienting the edges of the last layer. The reason why there are much fewer algorithms is because all of the cases have a F2L pair already or just one move away from making one. If the cube doesn't apply to that, you have to create a F2L pair or make it one move away.

 Note that all of these algorithms are written in the Western notation, where a lowercase letter means a double-layer turn and rotations are denoted by x, y, and z. (how to add algorithms) Click on an algorithm (not the camera icon) to watch an animation of it.
