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

CV- no doubt- Greg is The Man. I just wanted to mention bc I moved down here read this jumped in and had one of the very few truly negative experiences I've had climbing. This way people can read this and know it might be very tricky heady and or dangerous and decide for themselves. I admit I'm soft - you should have seen the 7 pieces I placed after the bolt on Graceland yesterday. But compared to mirror image Graceland is a warm bath. May 28, 2017

JMo, unlike you and me, Greg learned to place gear right here in SoAZ, rather than on the friendly cracks of NoAZ or Colorado. So he is very much, as you say, a true "Lemmon climber." I've climbed with him enough to know that he's so good with gear (and such great 'hang-on'), and has climbed so little in areas where the gear is actually good, that it's probably hard for him to imagine that someone else wouldn't optimize the placements on a route like Mirror Image.

If you lead this route and don't think it should be rated R, then you are truly a Lemmon climber. Come on, Greg. May 22, 2017
