Problem 18

By starting at the top of the triangle below and moving to adjacent numbers on the row below, the maximum total from top to bottom is 23.
   3
  7 4
 2 4 6
8 5 9 3
That is, 3 + 7 + 4 + 9 = 23.

Find the maximum total from top to bottom of the triangle below:
              75
             95 64
            17 47 82
           18 35 87 10
          20 04 82 47 65
         19 01 23 75 03 34
        88 02 77 73 07 63 67
       99 65 04 28 06 16 70 92
      41 41 26 56 83 40 80 70 33
     41 48 72 33 47 32 37 16 94 29
    53 71 44 65 25 43 91 52 97 51 14
   70 11 33 28 77 73 17 78 39 68 17 57
  91 71 52 38 17 14 91 43 58 50 27 29 48
 63 66 04 68 89 53 67 30 73 16 69 87 40 31
04 62 98 27 23 09 70 98 73 93 38 53 60 04 23

NOTE: As there are only 16384 routes, it is possible to solve this problem by trying every route. However, Problem 67, is the same challenge with a triangle containing one-hundred rows; it cannot be solved by brute force, and requires a clever method! ;o)

lroute = list(map(int, s.split("\n")[len(s.split("\n"))-1].split()))
for i in s.split("\n")[len(s.split("\n"))-2::-1]:
    route = list(map(int, i.split()))
    at = 0
    temp = []
    for j in route:
        if lroute[at] > lroute[at+1]:
            temp += [j+lroute[at]]
            #print(temp)
        else:
            temp += [j+lroute[at+1]]
            #print(temp)
        at += 1
    lroute = temp
    
print(lroute[0])   

Though run fast, it takes time to understand.
The output: 1074.
