GamesAid, a game industry charity that aims primarily to help children, has finally figured out a way to make raising money X-treme: by scaling large rocks in dangerously small amounts of time. Rad.

Martyn Northall, Richard Slater, Matt West-Robinson and Dermot Stapleton, employees of Just Flight and Mastertronic, are set to tackle the aptly named Three Peaks Challenge, reports. They’ll be scaling three mountains — a total of 26 miles — in under 24 hours. We’re not even sure rockets can move upward that quickly.
