Urban Explorer Climbs London’s Shard

Building is Europe's tallest


On Saturday, urban explorer Bradley L. Garrett announced that he has climbed London’s Shard, the tallest building in Europe. Garrett, 31, says he sneaked past a security guard with two friends and charged up 76 stories, then exited a hatch onto the roof and climbed a crane on top of the building. It is unclear when the trespass occurred, though Garrett says he has broken into the site “half a dozen times” since December 2010.

Garrett holds a PhD in urban exploration from the University of London.
