Diablo areas within the BLM Taos Field Office management area are: The Shack, Winter Wall, Solar Cave, Lake Street and Styx.
The first half of the route is in character with the first half of Post Moderate, with similar low angle cruising with positive edges. Reach a 2-bolt anchor at 28m just before the wall steepens. 5.7 climbers might be happy to stop here.
Above this anchor is the steep crux, then Hellboy moves right to a crack just for a short distance (this line is Highway to Hell). If you avoid the crack entirely (contrived), the face just next to it can be climbed on small edges at 5.10+ or something like that. After this crux section, follow the bolts on easier climbing to a higher 2-bolt anchor that is up and left of the anchor for Highway to Hell. You can't see the anchor until you're almost there, but just go straight up from the last bolt and you'll get there.
