Along with running with the bulls in Spain and rock climbing in Yosemite Valley in the USA, BridgeClimb Sydney has been rated in the Lonely Planet's top ten biggest adrenaline rush experiences! The Discovery Climb is a 3 ½ hour climb experience that journeys to the top along the inner arch of the Bridge,with the ability to touch the raw steel and rivets and experience this amazing structure up close. We eventually wound above the harbor on catwalks and emerged on the summit via a mammoth staircase between the two arches of the Bridge. According to Guinness World Records, it is the world's widest long-span bridge] and it is the tallest steel arch bridge, measuring 134 metres (440 ft) from top to water level. It is also the fifth-longest spanning-arch bridge in the world.
