Skyscraper Challenger

I was the second oldest participant in the 2023 Skyscraper Challenge in aid of Tommy’s (prenatal death research and counselling). This involved a 660′ abseil down the side of the Leadenhall Building (aka Cheesegrater) – having first climbed 42 flights of stairs (1095 steps).

1095 steps later. Time was 34:05. Could have been quicker but I kept company with another participant who was struggling
Partway down….
