# OLL

OLL is the Orientation of the Last Layer, and is the first step in solving the last layer in many speedsolving methods, such as the Fridrich Method.

Parentheses in an algorithm signify the triggers of the algorithm. For example, [(R U R') (L' U L)] shows two triggers in the algorithm, even though it is the same as [R U R' L' U L].

The areas shaded in gray represent the oriented pieces on the top layer. You can tell if a piece is oriented by looking at the top color of the piece in relation to the top center of the cube. If the piece is oriented, the two colors will be the same.

The bars sticking off to the side of an unshaded piece represent where the sticker that needs to be on top is.

## All edges flipped correctly

This subgroup, OCLL is used in methods which have oriented the LL edges earlier in the solve, such as ZZ.
