The bridge is an iconic emblem of Sydney and the climb has become one of the most sought after experiences in the city. Locals and tourists alike flock to the climb for a once-in-a-lifetime hike and certainly once-in-a-lifetime views. Turns out the experience really isn’t that scary. Everyone is secured by a lead line to the bridge and dare I say it’s nearly impossible for any harm to befall a climber. It takes a few hours, but the walk isn’t too strenuous and the views are worth any amount of effort. From the top of the bridge I could see everything on the bright and clear late winter morning. The drivers in the cars far below had no idea I was up there and I felt like an urban voyeur on a massive scale. Although it’s an expensive climb, it’s something everyone should do at least once in his or her lives.
