Sorry, this is my mistake in transcribing the method ― as far as I can tell it should indeed be palindromic. 

I chose to define "over" to mean "the 2nd is over the treble in this particular row". Since the path of the 2nd is determined by the rule from the outset, this made the most sense to me at the time. It's remarkably fiddly to work out what to do when the 2nd is dodging with the treble, and it's here that I've made the mistake ― just after the halfway point there should be a 34 instead of a 14 in the notation, for example.
