Practical matters

*Climbers must be at least 12 years old. Those under 17 must be accompanied by an adult.

*Wear rubber-soled, comfortable shoes.

* Climbers must pass an alcohol breath test.

*Allow three to four hours for the whole experience (including souvenir shopping afterward).

*Day and night climbs are available.

*Prices range from $55 to $95 (US). Night climbs cost more than day climbs, and weekend climbs cost more than weekday ones. There's a reduced rate for 12- to 16-year-olds.

*Peak season is December to March. BridgeClimb recommends booking a few weeks in advance (and at least a month prior if you want to go during the Olympics).
