5x5 Parity Algorithms (L2E)

One of the hardest parts for a beginner when solving the 5x5 is fixing the Last 2 Edges (L2E or also known as 5x5 parity) before we get to the 3x3 stage. Simply take your time and learn the following 12 algorithms for the 5x5 L2E.

We have taken the algorithms from many different sites online and spoke to many of the fastest 5x5 cubers in the U.K to build this page.

Notation: We use the official WCA notation for all of our algorithms.
If you use an algorithm you think to be more efficient please do get in touch and let us know.
