El Diablo 5.12d 7c 28 IX 28 E6 6b  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : El Diablo Wall
This is a great route...and I think an American Fork classic. I've included this route as modified because I want to play by the rules of this site...and any route with a hold commonly referred to as "The Sika Pocket" is going to have to be suspect.Anyway, this route is 8 or so routes in from the right on the El Diablo Wall and shares the start with another classic "Malvado" (13a)...ask a local for beta. Another point of reference is the route "Inferno" (13b), which is one route to the left.St...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

The mileage is NOT very accurate. It's .65 miles from the flag pole at the cave visitor center (or whatever it's actually called). If you go too far you WILL find a large pull out, but you will NOT be near the right place. From the bottom end of the pull out cut back across the road, go up the fairly obvious trail (maybe 20 ft down the road) and it's only about 2-3 minutes up the hill.
