The World's Toughest Milkman
Nearing the end of World's Toughest Milkman.
While considerably more overhanging than your average 5.8, a series of excellent flakes provide great holds and protection. The final mantel on a great jug will make you smile.
Some medium to large nuts and a single set of cams up to 3 inches should be fine. A 3.5 camalot can be used at the finish if you want to sew it up.

Great route, worth the hike. Good warm-up and a fun place to take your beginners who don't have strong fingers but might have big muscles! Is it a 9 or an 8? It's easy either way, but I say the overhang bumps up the grade...haven't seen too many novices pull that last move on their first try.
Protects very well, but save something big if you want to protect that last move.
