6th PC setups marked with ⭐ have 100% combined build cover and 100% recovery rate into 100% 7th PC setups.
You must learn these setups in order to always be able to loop using 6th PC.

Solve rates are for all solves, not just the recovery routes shown.
Regular PC solves not shown.

⭐ Simple No O 6th - IJ + Anti-PCO (2)

No O 6th is symmetrical and therefore can be mirrored. Mirroring is not necessary for Simple No O 6th build cover.
However, it may increase your chances of being able to hold a piece.

🩹 Simple 6th - IJ + Anti-PCO - Recovery (1)

Recovery sometimes requires a sequence of spins involving 180:

Try to hold IJ for increased PC chance.
Mirror in a way that will allow you to hold J/L (for mirror) if you need to.

Notable extra TST/TSS/Tet recovery leading to Cactus 7th/Box 7th:

It is possible to kick in S and T for TST solve with consecutive S-Spin Single and T-Spin Triple kicks:

Simple 6th - PCO

PCO comes in several different forms depending on in which columns the hole is. This has an effect on recoveries that can be used.

For recovery into Jeremy 7th, keep in mind that the open side of the standing J/L piece must be facing empty space.

Simple 6th - PCO + O

Similarly to PCO, PCO + O comes in several variants depending on in which columns the hole is. Here the effect on recovery is more profound, forcing you to use different combinations of setups.
