It could've been an alternative route. But then again, wasn't the half pendant on the Rock Quarry's avatar? Justin could've very well have been forced down into the Ledges. If not, Justin could've ran into his two temple guards in the Crypt and the King's Storeroom.

This isn't really about alternate paths, but just the layout in general. In the Bent Shaving Pan Episode, I think only the Chamber opened from the Ancient Warriors. The sound effect that played when Irish activate the armor was the same one that played in Apanugpak and William the Conqueror when the Chamber door opened. I also compared the sound effect to the ones that played when the Storeroom opened from the Ancient Warriors (the only runs that fit this criteria were Me Linh and Bifocal Monocle) and the noise is different from the one in Bent Shaving Pan/Apanugpak/William the Conqueror. Just an interesting observation.

The Observatory/Troubled Bridge passage was definitely open, you can see it in the top left corner when Jessie is the Wheel Room. Similarly, the Observatory/Troubled Bridge passage was open in Leif Erikson, which means that Keely (i think it was her name) could have avoided the the dickish alternative path/dead end combo and a guard as well.

I don't think Keeli actually turned the Sundial during the Stone Marker run. So it doesn't really show the Observatory-Bridge door opening. However, I do think that it would've opened though if she actually pushed all three tongues in the first place. I don't see the producers forcing the team up the central shaft and then taking a long path on the top floor. But then again, Season 1 also had ridiculous paths in the first place. Also, Roberto from Leonardo Da Vinci tried to do the same thing, but he never pressed all three tongues though. ;) But I agree, this layout was unfair from the start. It was even more cheap that Stone Marker's layout was identical to Leonardo Da Vinci.

I just remembered that in Lost Love Letter, the Observatory door opened from the Storeroom which could possibly be convincing that the Throne Room & Medusa's Lair was avoidable and that Derrick could've made this a solo run.

The same thing also happened in the Grandy Nanny run too where the Observatory opened for the Orange Iguanas after they completed the King's Storeroom. Except there was no solo chance in that run.

I assume the Observatory would've opened for the Blue Barracudas in Stone Head too since that layout was almost identical to Captain John Smith. And Tony wouldn't have to worry about the four snakes Medusa's Lair at all. But Heather moved slow and Tony looked clueless anyways. So I am not sure if that run would've been any better. :roll:
