Teenagers film themselves illegally climbing Golden Gate Bridge; video

Duo's Golden Gate Bridge climb attracts federal attention

Once they reached the top of the bridge, Teatime said, the friends made a decision to perform somersaults and hang their bodies to add another level of thrill to the climb.

YouTube is full of videos of risk takers performing risky stunts, each more mindless than the previous.

He told KPIX 5 that it took about 10 minutes to climb to the top of one of the bridge's famous towers. They were on the bridge for about an hour, he said.

"We just sort of came out and did it, there was not a plan really", Teatime said. "Guys, we've just made it to the top", says one of the teens in the video, adding, "It's so lovely up here".

"We weren't bothering anybody", Teatime said.

The bridge district did not know about the climb until it surfaced on social media weeks later.

Scouring the thick, red cables, Teatime and Rector sprinted up the bridge's frame, even stopping to do backflips and somersaults on the narrow "walkways".

"The Golden Gate Bridge is not an amusement park ride", he said, adding that the two men climbed the structure's vertical suspender ropes without any harnesses or fall protection. "You will get caught, I am in contact with authorities to make sure people wont climb this bridge!" General Manager of the Golden Gate Bridge Dennis Mulligan says bridge officials were not aware of the incident until it was posted online and they received a link. "It's a vital Bay Area transportation artery and a symbol of our community".

A week before the landmark structure's 80th anniversary, a couple of miscreants scaled to the top of the Golden Gate Bridge and dangled off the cables. He also pointed out that he and his friend did not harm anyone or damage any property.

Mulligan said a man who tried to climb the bridge four years ago was placed on a no-fly list and lost his job, which required him to fly, he said.

"We weren't doing anything wrong", he said.

The district said in a statement that security systems keep people from harming the bridge, but acknowledged that the trespassing incident "raises questions about how such an unauthorized climb was possible and the potential harm to drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and the climbers themselves".
