The pair climbed 30 feet up the bridge's vertical steel suspended ropes, then onto one of the span's main cables and then to the top of the north tower. The video follows the friends as they scaled a series of stairs, performed somersaults and back flips and hung their bodies off the bridge.
"The Golden Gate Bridge is not an amusement park ride", said Denis Mulligan, general manager of the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District.

Unsurprisingly, San Francisco officials aren't taking news of the stunt lightly. Two teens recently did a unsafe stunt by climbing the Golden Gate Bridge without any safety gear and the video which has now gone viral is terrifying and risky.
Mulligan and Golden Gate Bridge Patrol Captain Lisa Locati said in their Tuesday news conference that the young men put themselves and the drivers traveling below at risk.

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