This climb might just well, tickle your blossom. That or the tree behind you will. Either way, you'll have a good time. Start up some cool natural pockets (optional red tricam), undercling out a flake, then work your way up to a roof (heady). Punch in good gear, and climb slightly left towards a short finger crack. One last steep bulge deposits you at a bolted anchor.

It is possible to traverse left from Ddong Chim! to set up a TR on Tickle My Blossom before committing to a lead if you wish.


This is between Reef On It! and Ddong Chim!.


Red Tricam, purple c3 - #0.75 Camalot. Go heavy on the 0.3 size.
It has a 2 bolt anchor.

Doze, you must have gotten on Ddong Chim which starts in the same pockets as Tickle my Blossom but then follows bolts to the right. TmB travels slightly left after the pockets and pulls a roof.

Apologies... Monty, you're right. I thought I was on 'Opportunist' when I did 'No Opportunities missed', and it messed up the order of the rest of them in my head.
