Overview
FA: Cameron Burns, James Garret, and Chris Eng 3/99. FFA: Jeff Hollenbaugh and Cameron Tague.

Wigs in Space ascends a continuous flake and crack system up the southwest face of Red Arch Mountain.This is a decent route with cool features. Jeff and Cameron free climbed this route in a day on the same trip they also bagged the first free ascent of Plan B. The 5.11+ rating listed comes from hearsay: use it only as a general guideline. Scope the route well before you go. The first ascent party used a few pins and hooks, but it now goes clean easily. Using aid, however, is not recommended.

Rack: 1 ea .33-.4, 2 ea .5-5, nuts, 2 60m ropes.

Descent: rappel the route or rappel Bits and Pieces (see topo).
