BridgeClimb Challenges Nervous Climbers to ‘Face Your Fear’

Today, 26th November 2014, BridgeClimb launches Face your Fear: an initiative supporting and encouraging acrophobia sufferers to pledge to overcome their nerves and climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

With help from Clinical Psychologist Gemma Cribb, BridgeClimb has developed an ultimate online toolkit at: bridgeclimb.com/face-your-fear hosting top tips, expert videos, support tools, blogs, a hero gallery and a pledge page completion.

Through the initiative BridgeClimb is giving pledge entrants the chance to win a special televised Face your Fear coaching seminar and Climb with personal Climb Leaders and Gemma Cribb.

Cribb said, “Two to five per cent of the population experience a fear of heights. It can hold people back from achieving goals and enjoying special activities with loved ones such as taking part in a BridgeClimb. However, with the right support and advice, acrophobia suffers will be surprised at what they can accomplish.

“I’m delighted to join BridgeClimb in their quest to help more Climbers take steps to face their fear and to do something they can be truly proud of, climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge”.

BridgeClimb has been helping people conquer their fear of heights for more than 16 years, with a 100% safety record. More than 3.2 million people have reached the summit, from 137 countries.

Climb Leader Amiee Hesson said, “I’ve had the privilege of sharing in the magical moments of Climbers who have overcome their fear and achieved what for many is a lifetime goal. It’s very special and we’re so proud to play a part in helping them through.

“It’s so important for nervous Climbers to realise they are not in it alone and they can do it! We’re ready to hold their hand before and during and to celebrate with them afterwards.”

Acrophobia sufferers who make a #BridgeClimbPledge can win a place on a special televised Face your Fear Climb on a BridgeClimb Sampler: a shorter and economical ‘taste’ of the iconic BridgeClimb, taking Climbers half way to the summit, perfect for first-time Climbers nervous about going to the very top.
