Neuro Pressure Sensation Spinal Tract!

Is pressure carried on the anterior spinothalamic tract or the dorsal-column medial lemniscus pathway? Snell neuroanatomy says the AST but Kaplan Lecture Notes says the DCMLP

Anterior spinothalamic tract is for crude touch
And, dorsal column is for proprioception, vibratory sensation and fine touch
Hope this helps!
