Description

Just left of "Conan" on Blob Rock is a lichen-streaked overhanging wall. "Erki Nool" takes a direct line up the steep face following a line of bolts to a ledge and a two-bolt anchor. The climbing is similar to "The Contest" with great moves on good stone that will clean up with more ascents. A two-bolt anchor has been established at the base of the route to provide a safe belay and rappel.

Protection

Eight bolts lead to a two-bolt anchor.

Steve Annecone asked "What does the 'WGA' stand for?" According to the FA party, WGA means, "World's Greatest Athlete, from Estonia - 2000 Olympic Decathlon Champion". Dec 21, 2005

I thought this was an excellent route and would rate as a 3 star in most places. Considering the neighbors, 2 stars. It's continuously overhung from the start to end, and has an interesting crux just past the 3rd bolt that felt 11c or 11d. Even if no move is harder than 11c, this is so sustained that an 11d rating seems right. There's still a bit of grit but it's going away fast! What does the "WGA" stand for? Dec 20, 2005

This route is a great addition to the wall -- fun moves with huge holds just when you need them. It's a good warm-up for Conan or Extreme; it's a little easier but gives you a good pump. Jan 14, 2004
