This is a lovely little crag relatively stacked with good cracks. Lots of them are fatties, but there are a couple of great thin cracks here too. Not too many people come here due to the long vague approach, it's a pain to get to Gorilla Rock compared with just about everywhere else in Vedauwoo. Often regarded as a locals crag, pissed off locals please refer to Bob Scarpellis comments regarding who should be able to climb in the outlying areas of Vedauwoo contained in his 1987 guide to the outlying areas of Vedauwoo, The Cracksmen (rare book).
If approaching from the front of Reynolds Hill, continue to the left (west) around Reynolds Hill. Gorilla rock is the farthest hump west of Reynolds Hill and still more or less attached to it. As the trail wraps around and heads north, just after it passes north of the long arm of Gorilla Rock, you will see a large distinct freestanding swoopy boulder a little off the trail to the right. Walk toward this and look around for the trail that sprouts up somewhere around here. Follow this spotty trail into the thick forest, looking up the thickly forested hill to the right to get infrequent glimpses of Gorilla Rock. When you think you can see it, start bushwacking up this hill to get to Gorilla rock. No real path exists here, find your own way and don't abuse the landscape! Once at Gorilla rock you will encounter two alcoves side by side, containing several cracks each, and guarded by huge boulders.
