Taka Boulder Clip

In the NG+ Any% Bombless route, because you never get cherrybomb, the taka pass cherrybomb boulder cant be blown up and one must use the KT Glitch to get on top of the ledge and go through the cave from the top. This loses alot of time but luckly on the way back you are able you clip through the boulder and bloom the tree 15 seconds faster. Due to the fact that this trick is 10 - 25 minutes into the run and pretty difficult, this clip is reserved for top level runs.
After defeating waka, go to the inside of the boulder and jam ammy into the right corner (from the inside). Now that your in the corner, while facing the corner you want to have ammy's shadow be parallel to the wall with the cherry bomb. Once ammy is in position, press R3 to snap the camera. Now that the camera is in position, do a full jump, then kt, at about 2/3 of your way up from the kt hold dead right on your control stick than bonk. After you bonk, keep holding right and ammy should pop out of the boulder. After this, do 1-2 KTs to reach the tree because the game checks to see if your high enough before letting you bloom the tree
