|Red Diamond Wall
Another long Red Diamond Wall climb: sustained from the get-go until a rest before the off-width at the top. Although the rock looks suspect (esp. at the bottom) everything felt solid. Seems to protect well enough in spite of original "R" rating...
My guess is the name was derived due to MI's similarity with "High Pro Glow" which too follows incipient cracks before finishing with an off-width. The similarities however end there as MI is a spectacular line.
right of bolted line: sidewinder.
standard rack, might want something big (bd #4) for the top

this was an awesome route! i can see how people would say pg13 or R for the bottom section. However, the moves can be protected with small c3s. About 20 ft up i was able to get a nice # 1 c4. Stellar climb. one of the my fav on Lemmon
