Climb Option 2:ULTIMATE Conquer the entire Bridge from South to North, and back again

[ Ultimate to Summit (3.5 hours) ]

  • The iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of the world’s longest steel-arch bridges, spanning an impressive 500 metres and standing proud above the sparkling Sydney Harbour. For many years, BridgeClimbers have scaled the South-side of the Bridge only to reach that jaw-dropping Summit moment…until now. Going where no Climb has gone before, the Ultimate Climb is the most adventurous climb experience in BridgeClimb’s history, and we don’t say that lightly. The first of its kind allowing climbers to conquer the entire breadth of the legendary “Coathanger” from South to North, and back again.
  • Latching on at the Climb Base below the Bradfield Highway, you will walk below the road-deck until you reach the South-East Pylon. There you will go up four ladders to the start of the upper arch. With the Summit in your sight, your journey continues along the Bridge’s upper arch on the Opera House side until you hit the top. After a Summit celebration with your group, you will cross to the west-side to make your descent to Climb Base.

Climb to the Summit in safety gear and following a Climber Leader

Depart Time :  9am-10am / 10am-11pm
*Not available during our peak period from Wednesday 25th December 2024 to Friday 3rd January 2025 inclusive.

Climb Option 3:SUMMIT INSIDER A journey through the cathedral of steel, along the lower arch, to the Summit

[ Express to Summit (2.5 hours) ]  Depart Time : 9am-10am  or 11am-12pm

Previously known as the Summit Express Climb

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. The breathtaking views you’ll experience along the way will live long in your memory, as will the stories from your expert Climb Leader.

THE JOURNEY: 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.

Summit Insider Climb

Transport for NSW is commencing works on the inner arch of the Bridge from April 22nd 2024. To allow for this, we will be operating an alternate Climb route on the Summit Insider Climb for the next few months until this work has been completed. This will not impact the duration of the Climb and the alternate route is shown in the image below. It will give guests the advantage of being right above the road deck in the middle of the bridge for part of their Climb.
