βeta: Pretty sure this has been misidentified in the 2015 Rockfax, based on the name of the route and the older Rockfax. In the 2015 this is described as “the entertaining crack eliminating holds on Fountain of Youth” but based on the old Rockfax and the problem itself, “the line of flowstone pockets and pinches” (ie the description given for Fountain) seems more accurate (and hence presumably giving the name Taming the Flow). Definitely the problem that goes up the leftmost flowstone pillar is not 5+!
