I just updated my predicted touchdown based on the landing terrain
elevation.  You can see the estimated object as "Revised?".  I used google
earth to chart the elevations across the estimated final 4 minutes as
shown here:

The idea is that the elevation was rising rapidly here, and so it would
have hit the mountain earlier.
