Arete maybe 500 ft north of the main Gorilla Head wall. I believe this is the arete Chris Buckley and crew climbed (trad) at ~5.9. There is a less than vertical wall covered with really nice holds just around the arete, but it looked sparse for gear unless you stayed in the two gully cracks. The face looked really nice for solo routes if you are into that kind of thing. Otherwise they would need a ton of bolts to adequately protect them, probably not worth while or appropriate. <br>
