1,916 ft down
3 iconic buildings
1 hell of an experience
On Monday 7th September 2015, a select, daredevil group abseiled from the top of three of the City’s most iconic buildings – 30 St Mary Axe, The Leadenhall Building and 20 Fenchurch Street, otherwise known as The Gherkin, The Cheesegrater and The Walkie-Talkie, 1,916ft down to the ground below.
This epic descent - the longest civilian abseil in history and the first time anyone has ever abseiled down these buildings before – helped raise life-changing funds for The Outward Bound Trust and The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity: transforming the lives of young people as well as serving and former naval personnel and their families in the UK.
