CONDITION REPORT 
Wear your helmets if you are below this wall. The weekend of July Fourth a friend and I both pulled holds off this route. This change doesn't impact the grade.

CONDITION REPORT 
Wearing a helmet is advised for any route in this sector while belaying as the rock is porous. I went back over Vitamin I a couple of weeks ago with a crowbar and removed two more large flakes and tested the remaining ones in at least 3 places. There is still the possibility that something could still work loose with time, so, belay off to the right by Aaron's route.

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.
