Coordinate Covalent Bonding
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.
