Daredevils Film Illegal Backflips on Golden Gate

Daredevils Film Illegal Backflips on Golden Gate

One climber appeared to be holding on to the cables as they sprinted toward one of the bridge's main towers.

The duo dangled off the tower's ledge with only their fingertips latched onto the thin railing, pulled off a couple somersaults and even snapped a selfie shot while standing on top of the tower's highest point.

He said of the climb: 'We didn't do any preparation for the climb, nor have any safety equipment, we just had to focus our minds on the cables, while trying to dodge security cameras. In April 2008, the bridge was scaled by two Sausalito men and an Oakland woman to protest China's treatment of Tibet and the impending arrival of the Olympic torch.

"The Golden Gate Bridge is not an amusement park ride", said Denis Mulligan, general manager of the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District.

Bridge officials at a press conference Tuesday condemned the actions - which they became aware of earlier this month - but insisted the pair could not have harmed the span.

KTVU spoke with Peter Teatime who said he and Rector planned the stunt ahead of time.

"We don't want to hurt anybody else's property or put anyone else at risk", Teatime said.

"The reckless behavior of the individuals who performed this stunt does not distract from this fact", Clemens said. "It is vital public infrastructure and it's a symbol of our community". And he tells ABC 7 that he'd been happy to offer his consulting services to the bridge authority or Homeland Security to help them prevent other people from doing what he did.

"To us, it's not nerve-racking", he said.

The bridge was not damaged or harmed by the climbers, 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".

Climbing on the bridge is a misdemeanor under state law, according to the Clemens.

Locati said the bridge's security system was "not created to protect thrill-seekers from harming themselves".
