GCN Any% (Gorge) (Zora Armor)

Note that this alternative Any% route is about 35 seconds slower than the optimal Any% route with Bombs

If you are not consistent with Morpheel / Zant without Zora Armor, this route probably is the better alternative.

Runs should start with a blank file in slots 1, 2 and 3 as all files are used during the run.
