The 27-year-old Danny Parker sends the third ascent of the „Century Crack“ (8c/5.14b), the endless roof crack in Canyonlands, Utah. Probably one of the world’s worst cracks was first ascented in 2011 by the „Wide Boyz“ Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker. For the past seven years, Danny has been repeating off-wide test pieces such as „Trench Warfare“ (5.12+), „Gabriel“ (5.13c), „The Forever War“ (5.13), and cracks like „Jaws“ (5.12+ ) and „Flavorblasted“ (5.13-). When „Century Crack“ first arrived in 2011, the route represented a new dimension of offwidth crack climbing.
