Mark, I should probably clarify:

The left line is a continuation of the dike route (listed as unfinished project in the guide) between Stemming Laurel and Central Pillar. It's complete (and good) and I will try to document it on here soon.

The right line has been finished and is called Central Pillar Direct Finish. I originally removed the hangers on it thinking it wasn't very good (and I climbed the left line instead), but as it turns out, it wasn't as awkward as I'd originally thought. Plus I added a couple bolts to the start to straighten the line and make it safer, so it's actually quite a fun way to finish now.

We tried both of these because P4 was wet on Central Pillar and found both lines to be significantly harder than anything up to this point.
