Putting in bolts on lead during FA circa late 1970...
Go up right side of outside corner.
Big Wall section. Right side of obvious outside corner.
FA was aided, had a couple bolts. FFA used these bolts. More bolts now.

[In the nicest way possible]
First of all: Covalent Bonding is 5.10- and Coordinate Covalent Bonding is 5.11-. 5.9 is a little sandbagged for my taste.
Second of all: It has to be more than 30 feet tall.
Third of all: I have never seen anyone even talk about trad leading this route. It would be either extremely difficult or super runout. This is a sport route.
This is a superfun route. I am sure some people can do the first move static, but I have to throw myself at that first ledge. And no matter how many times I have lead this, it always feels a little sketchy clipping that first bolt.
I appreciate that these Logtown routes are getting put on this site, and I am really not trying to be a jerk. I am just adding what I believe are accurate comments. Sean has certainly been on the scene much longer than I have so I am making these comments with the utmost respect.
