Getting weather forecast...
The Distillery wall feautures long vertical single pitch climbs on weathered granite. Most of the routes are sport in the 5.11 range though a handful of trad routes exist as well. A twenty bolt ~120' climb named Yards of Ale is definately worth doing if you've made the hike up here.
From the parking area on 89, pick up the trail on the opposite side of the road that leads slightly left, and up. After a little ways, the trail will begin switch-backing. Later it will come upon a long steep talus field. Climb most of it, the Luther Rock will be up and just to the right, the left half Distillery Wall is directly facing the talus field. When you're about as high as the rock, a faint trail will leave the right side of the talus field. Follow this and it will lead you directly to the base of the rock.The bolted route just left of the right-facing ramp is Five Nine.
