The first really tricky room of the hold.

In your attempt the roach makes 4 diagonal steps before reaching the trapdoors (including the one in the cage he starts in). You need to make one less diagonal step.

The roach necessarily makes a diagonal step every time your path diverges from a straight orthogonal line and changes direction. So think in terms of straight orthogonal lines. Just how much do you need to change direction really?
