The Devilís Slide area is one of four walls along the Backside of the Main Dome. It is located on the far left side of the wall, immediately left of Cheap Wine Wall. This is probably one of the longer approaches in the park, but the reward is a number of moderate, well-protected, and fun slab climbs that are among the longest in the park. The views from the wall to the north and west are as good as any in the park. The Devilís Slide also marks the start of a couple long girdle traverses that trace the entire length of the Backside.
To reach the Devilís Slide, follow the Echo Canyon trail through the Main Dome Ė Little Dome saddle, down the draw, and through the boulders at the bottom. There is a well used hiking trail that leads out from the boulders and loops to the right (northeast) and continues around the entire dome. Follow the trail past the marker for the blue climbersí trail to the yellow trail. Turn right and head towards the wall. The Devilís Slide is to the left while the Cheap Wine Wall is to the right. You can also reach the Devilís Slide from anywhere along the Backside by simply following the trail at the base of the wall to the left.
