Warning Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures ***** RAIN AND WET ROCK ***** The sandstone in Zion is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Holds rip off and climbs have been and will continue to be permanently damaged due to climbers not respecting this phenomenon. After a heavy storm the rock will remain wet, sometimes for several days. PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB IN ZION during or after rain. A good rule of thumb is that if the ground near your climb is at all damp (and not powdery dry sand), then do not climb. There are many alternatives (limestone, granite, basalt, and plastic) nearby.

Description Suggest change

If you've seen images of this, you need to hike in and climb it. It is one of the coolest desert sport routes I've done. Most of the holds are big and none of the moves are hard, but by the end, you're getting pumped. I think there might be a kneebar somewhere around mid-height to shake out.

Getting down is a little tricky because it is very steep. A 70m rope will just barely get you down.

It's worth noting that the Stewart Green Utah Climbing guidebook incorrectly labels Dost Mitra as Namaste, this is probably the cause of so many votes for Namaste being soft.

Protection Suggest change

15 bolts, plus a two-bolt anchor with chains and quick links

Location Suggest change

Namaste is the bolted line fifth-from-the-left. Look for the narrow band of huecos following a thin black streak in the steepest part of the wall.
