|This is quite possibly the most serene and wonderful sport climbing area I've ever been to. We had it to ourselves on a stormy holiday weekend. Wonderful, wonderful place.|

The admins of this area and its routes need to do some updating on the route descriptions with heavy focus on the locations of each of the routes. I guess we can no longer say that Namaste is the third route from the left.
I was just at the Namaste Wall today (Nov 29, 2013) and thought I had hopped on Namaste. Once I returned home, I realized that I actually climbed Dost Mitra, a route that sits between Huecos Rancheros and Namaste.
From what I could see, there are 5 bolted routes on the Namaste Wall. After glancing at the latest version of Rock Climbing Utah and scouring through Mountain Project, I have decided that the routes are as follows, from left to right: Unknown 5.10, Huecos Rancheros 5.12c, Dost Mitra 5.11a/b, Namaste 5.12a, and Unknown Project (possibly named Twins Paradox 5.13a on Mountain Project and I assume a typo states that it sits between Huecos Rancheros and Dost Mitra).
Be aware, the latest version of Rock Climbing Utah by Stewart Green mentions Dost Mitra and Twins Paradox in the opening paragraph for the Namaste Wall, but the topo and listed routes only include the Unkown 5.10, Huecos Rancheros, and Namaste. Also note that the line representing Namaste on the topo/photo is actually overlaid on Dost Mitra.

Ben you are mistaken about the location of twins. You probably didn't see the route between huecos and mitra due to the camo black hangers. For clarification: left to right
Unknown half route- 10+ with 3 bolt 11+ extension
Huecos rancheros 12c
Twins paradox 13a/12-. Black hangers
Dost mitra 11a.
Abandoned project with a few bolts and ratty slings in super choss rock
Around corner is a chopped route with a lone drilled angle that leads to an arching crack with anchors

The information on how to get to this spot is a little vague. Here is the definitive:
The Taylor Creek Trailhead is NOT the way to go. There is a parking spot 1.1 miles PAST the taylor creek trail head on the right side of the road, just before the hairpin turn. That is where you park, then cross the road and follow the trail up the canyon.
Below is the entrance to the trail.
