Alternatives

You can go to Dodongo's Cavern after becoming adult and getting bombs before doing Shadow Temple, this is slower but safer if you are not sure how to do chuslideteleport or how to cross the gap with a chumegasidehop. It also gives you more chus to use on Spirit Hover if you choose to do it.

If you do get bombs first, you can then get hookshot and get on top of Dampe's house with Isg active and hover to the seam from there. A simple superslide and equipping hoverboots afterwards will get you across the gap after getting Bosskey.

After Magic, you can take the Death Mountain Crater route to Goron City, this allows you to get the bombs in the grotto but it is much slower than taking fall damage on the Trail on the way to GC.

In Spirit Temple, you don't have to farm bombs from the armos. If you are doing spirit BK skip, you can get the bombs chest in the mirror puzzle room, it contains 20 bombs and there is no RNG.
