At the cross, the leader steps back...

...and then outside her left

Figure 6 combines figures 5 & 4: Basic salida to cross to front ocho to L side walk to R side walk to cross. We start with figure 5, at followers forward ocho onto her R foot just after her cross. The leader has stepped back L (1st picture), and now crosses R foot over L (2nd picture). As the follower steps in front of him onto her L foot, the leader pivots to the L on both feet and then steps forward on his R foot between her feet, then forward L on her L side, beginning figure 4.

Follower's part: After finishing her front ocho her transition step is side R. She then steps back L, beginning the sequence described in figure 4.
