Description 

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.

Location 

right of bolted line: sidewinder.

Protection 

standard rack, might want something big (bd #4) for the top
