This wall boasts the classic multi-pitch lines that have made Diablo Canyon famous to the outside communities.

At the 5th bolt, it begins to trend up and right to eventually reach the Sun Devil ledge system right below the Astro Devil face that shares space with the first anchor of Sun Devil. From here, one elegant pitch followed by one wild pitch take you to the top-out. Descend by 3 rappels, the last being a rope stretcher for a 60m, so be careful.
