BridgeClimb Summit Insider

Summit Insider

A journey through the cathedral of steel, along the lower arch, to the Summit

The climb path
360° VIEWS
1,002 STEPS

Step-by-step (1,002 to be exact!) you will journey through the heart of the Bridge, a cathedral of steel, before bursting through to the Summit. As you ascend the lower arch you’ll be surrounded by beams of steel and the hustle and bustle of the traffic below, enabling you to appreciate the beauty in the Bridge’s construction, and enjoy the 360-degree views that surround you.


This Climb allows you to get up close and personal with the Bridge and experience a unique inside perspective. 

Latching on in the Climb Base below the Bradfield Highway, you will walk on catwalks directly over Sydney Harbour past the South-East Pylon, until you meet the base of the Bridge’s lower arch on the Opera House side. Here you will commence your ascent as you rise to the peak of the lower arch. At this point, you will break through to the upper arch by taking a staircase to the Summit. After a Summit celebration with your group, you cross the spine of the Bridge to the Darling Harbour side to make your descent to our Climb Base.
