Consequently, can you climb Golden Gate Bridge?
The model for the Golden Gate Bridge experience is the Bridge Climb at the Sydney Harbour Bridge, where visitors pay about $200 for a guided trek along catwalks, up and down ladders and along the outer arch of the coat-hanger-shaped bridge.
Subsequently, question is, how far is the drop from the Golden Gate Bridge to the water? It takes four seconds to fall the 220 feet from the Golden Gate Bridge to the waters of the San Francisco Bay below. In that brief instant, a falling body can reach speeds of 75 m.p.h. The impact is almost always fatal. Just three months after the bridge opened in 1937, a man jumped.
Similarly, what holds up the Golden Gate Bridge?
It's a simple concept: Two cables anchored on either side of the 1-mile wide Golden Strait are held aloft by two steel towers. That's it: only two cables, each 36-3/8 inches (92.4 cm) in diameter. Here's a photo of a cross section of cable displayed at the Golden Gate Bridge Welcome Center* on the San Francisco side.
How long does it take to walk across the Golden Gate Bridge?
approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours
