Goofing around, I discovered something interesting.

If you have the Acrobatics skill, you don't need to know the magic words to get past the bush blocking the path to Baba Yaga's hut. if it's high enough, you can actually take an acrobatic leap over the bushes instead. It's also a fairly detailed sequence featuring the Hero backing up, running at the bush, and leaping over it.

And the game remembers, too, because when you leave, you'll leap back over the bush.

I wonder what happens if your skill is too low though...
WHAT?! I NEVER KNEW ABOUT THIS!!! THIS CHANGES THE THIEF ANY% ROUTE!!

That is truly amazing information. I need to investigate this.
This makes sense too! I haven't played much as the Thief, it'll be exciting to see the sequence one day if I manage to play as a Thief! (I've still yet to finish the Fighter and Wizard runs)

Well, after some testing, it appears that this is a better way to handle Baba Yaga as the thief in Any%. No more Leshy, which means I can skip straight to getting the grapnel and thieves guild with no need to check the bookcase anymore for the leshy information. This saves at least a minute of time, probably more like two-three.

Glad I helped you discover a new strat! :D
