BETA PHOTO: Night Owl
The other route that uses the bolts on top, Night Owl (a.k.a. Bunk Face) is slightly less intimidating than Bunk Arete. Still solid 5.6 moves, though.
Start anywhere for the bottom and middle tiers; upon reaching the final tier, move straight up under leftmost vertical seam at top; reach seam, follow it to top.
Good until you reach the business; then, there is none. Definite ledge fall. Bolted anchor at the top.

I thought this was more balancy than the arete, and the holds a bit thinner overall. Don't have 5.6+ as an option so I'd rate it closer to a 5.7 than a 5.6

I'm going with 7+ on this one. It takes some real crimpin' to get up that sheer face.

The last third of this route was some of the nicest climbing I've done, to bad it was only for about 15 feet.

Definitely agree with the 5.7 upper half
