Rather them then me! These two are not taking part in a new "extreme" sport (I think!). Rather they are abseiling down the exterior of the upper observation decks of the Spinnaker Tower cleaning the outside of the viewing floor windows.

I hope they're substantially better paid then the common or garden "man with a ladder" type of window cleaner, though they did rather obscure my view with their ropes safety lines. A view of the window cleaners from ground level can be seen in SZ6299 : The top of the Spinnaker.
