Saturday 22nd June – The 418’ Challenge
There are many things to look forward to in the Festival Fortnight, however, the chance to hang Hugh and to plunge Phil, has to be right up there.
The thought of both the DPGM and APGM being tied up together with straps, webbing and ropes is disturbing enough for anyone, but no more disturbing than for Hugh and Phil as this will mean they will be ready to throw themselves over the edge of the world’s tallest permanent abseiling tower.
They will be abseiling/falling down 418 feet (about 40 floors) which is taller than Centrepoint in Tottenham Court Road and not something most would dare. However, this does not phase Hugh or Phil, as their training plan is simple - do everything you can to assist gravity.
Some have said they took their training far too seriously.
If they make it in one piece, they should be seen later at the Gala Ball [hopefully not tied up together] but in need of a very stiff drink. Please Sponsor Hugh & Phil now as we are not convinced we will see them after.
