Any% (Door Cancel Early Leaf)

This is a route of the any% speedrun which obtains the Deku Leaf before Bombs, using the Door Cancel glitch. This saves about 5s over the No PG Skip route (or both Sail and Sail Skip) and loses about 6s for the current optimal PG Skip route (saves 13s for Sail route). This route eliminates the possible FF2 void-out from the usual FF2 swim and substitutes Leaf Hover with Door Cancel. Like other routes, Sail skip is optional. Due to the nature of how Forest Haven is entered, Deku Tree Cutscene Skip is required.
