City Three PeaksBilled as "the most ambitious charity fundraising event in the City of London's history", City Three Peaks challenges 40 thrill-seekers to abseil down three of the capital's most iconic buildings: The Gherkin - abseiled down for the first time ever, The Leadenhall Building (also known as 'The Cheesegrater') and 20 Fenchurch Street (aka 'The Walkie Talkie'). Each tower will be descended one after the other and all three buildings add up to a combined height of 1,916ft - that's double that of The Shard. It's not just about adrenaline and abseiling. The aim is to raise a staggering 4 million for The Outward Bound Trust, The Royal Navy and The Royal Marines Charity - given The Descent of The Shard abseil back in September 2012 raised 2.8 million, that's quite a lofty sum to raise in just a few hours. Sponsored by CLIF bar, America's favourite energy bar, each of the participants will be supplied with energy bars and gels to keep them going.


 

About The Gherkin or 30 St Mary Axe

Designed by Norman Foster and affectionately, and understandably, dubbed "The Gherkin" thanks to its unique bullet-shape tower, 30 St Mary Axe stands out as one of the City of London's most stunning and critically acclaimed architectural features. Looming up at 180 metres tall it towers over nearby constructions and with its tessellated glass exterior and unique energy-saving methods was voted (December 2005) the most admired new building in the world.
