CONDITION REPORT 

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.

Are you sure that this route is right of Heuco Rancheros? Or is it right of Namaste? I didn't see any bolts between Heuco Rancheros and Dost Mitra. But I did see bolts--almost looked like an unfinished project--to the right of Namaste.
