Paul Huebner just above the 3rd bolt?

Description 

Go through the damn tunnel and head left. When you get to the end of the buttress on your left, follow the path up to the left (between the rocks and the old road). Evarete is the second spire/rock.

The route starts on the Northwest corner, you should be able to see some of the bolts that follow the Arete up to the top. The climbing is right on the corner, fun and slightly exposed with a good summit. Rap down to the start from the anchor.

Protection 

5 bolts to an anchor

Evarete has everything you want. Typical Needles run-out up to the first bolt, lots of exposure and a fantastic small summit with a nice hanging belay station. It even provides a free rap half way down the rappel route. My only suggestion besides to have fun is to watch where you put your left leg when you bring your second home to the anchors since if she slips she'll take your left leg out when she goes by. Another bolt just below the anchors would protect the traverse for your second.

"Go through the damn tunnel and head left." Classic! I don't know why Kevin hates the tunnel so much. Great route.

Led this route at least a half a dozen times now and still love it. But the last two times (7/9/15 most recently) that I've been up there the right bolt's hanger is bent almost flat and looks funky. Also the rap rings are hanging on a single, water-knotted sling that has been double threaded through the bolt hangers. I don't like rapping on one sling (doubled or not) so we backed it up with another sling girth-hitched to good, left bolt hanger and added a biner level with the rappel rings to thread your rope through when you rap down.
