A doubled version of the classic Panex with five columns and an empty one.

Panex Duo is a doubled version of the classic Panex puzzle, invented by Toshio Akanuma and manufactured by Tricks Company in Japan in the 1980's. Please refer to the separate entry. Whereas the original Panex puzzle has two columns of pieces that need to be switched and an empty one, Panex Duo has five columns of pieces and an empty one. The puzzle has three challenges:
1) Move the bottom left column to the empty top left (easiest)
2) Swap the bottom middle column with the top middle column (harder)
3) Swap the bottom right column with the top right column (hardest)
If one can solve the classic Panex puzzle, one can solve these puzzles as well. However, the solution for the classic Panex is highly inefficient for this one, so one may want to find a more efficient solution.
The staircase design assures that each colour can only be moved down to its specific depth.
