Those 2 pitches in your picture are my doing. Basically I tried to climb the groove first, but after I realized it was gonna be a lot harder than first thought, I ended up climbing the thing to the left, which goes free at maybe 11b/c. Never thought enough of it to write it up though - so no name.
The Fischesser route is really fun and leads up to that upper pitch (or the belay on stemming laurel) if you climb pitch 3. P-3 is easier but way runout and could probably use some better pro and or maybe a bolted belay below the un-named bulge.
By all means feel free to put the hangers back on that other groove (and maybe add another bolt) and give it a go.
