Head to 2F of the Space Center once again to meet with Steven. There, he tells you that Wallace - from Sootopolis, the Gym Leader, remember? - may know how to unseal the Pillar. Fly to Sootopolis.
Head to the Cave of Origin area when you arrive; it’s north of the Poké Mart, as you’ll recall. Wallace will be near the front, speaking with a man, referencing Pokémon Trainer AZ again in the process. Wallace will speak with you and decide to go ahead and unlock the Sky Pillar for you while you catch up.
Sky Pillar is off of Route 131, so Fly there. (If you haven’t been there, see the walkthrough for Route 129 as a starting point for going further along to Sky Pillar, since it will be noted.)
When you arrive on the Route, begin Surfing and Surf northwest to the entrance of the Pillar, where you’ll find Wallace. He’ll speak with you briefly before telling you that, by right, he must battle you before you proceed.

It’s not much different from his Gym Battle, really, mostly just higher-leveled Pokémon, though they themselves are about the standard level for what you’ve been dealing with lately. No trouble.
After, simply enter the Pillar!
After going through a small cave, you’ll end up on Route 131 again, then into the Pillar proper you go.
That’s some awesome music. You’ll hear it as Zinnia, who is inside, goes on about the history of the Draconid people, cutting off before you get to the next floor.
Before following her, go to the northern side of the area and use the ladder there to reach a Dragon Scale, then follow Zinnia up the ladder, then west and south. After that bit from her, continue following her several times.
When Zinnia tells you the final chapter of the tale of Rayquaza, go west down the series of ladders first to find TM64 (Explosion) before using the ladder she used.
