This route may be in a different sector as it is the first route to the right of Vitamin K. Vertical face to pumpy bulge, feels about the same as Pump Me Like A Shotgun in difficulty and has a similar style. The belayer should stay in close to the wall as the flakes may still shed some chunks. A pretty thorough cleaning was done though.
Protection - about 12 bolts to the anchor.

|I'm hesitant to rate this because it's in the wrong area and I'm not sure we're all talking about the same climb. I'd say Vitamin I (one or two routes left of Acid Mother Temple, climbs up some flakes on the lower section then a roof on jugs) is 11b, since it's a bit easier than the Face Melter Roof. Very nice climb though--not exactly classic but good.|
