saw a topo on PP that showed the finish of PP going up a left facing corner under the roof. However, the D. cragger shows PP about 10' to the right, finishing with an undercling on a large flake/hand crack. anyone know the real story?

The first pitch of Primitive Paradox goes up a left-facing corner. At the top of the corner, you step up onto a ledge and traverse left about 20 feet or so to bolts. For the second pitch, you head up a right-facing corner just to the right of the bolts. A little bit of face climbing takes you to a higher, right-leaning, right-facing corner above. There's a small flake sticking out of the very top of that corner, and that's the crux. Once you top out that corner, you'll be under the big roof and the rap rings to get down are right there.

This picture gives a pretty good idea of what the second pitch looks like from the belayer's point of view.
