The teenagers, Peter Teatime and Tommy Rector, told the Daily Mail details of their climb up the 746-foot bridge towers: "It was a tough climb and incredibly tiring, those cables get very steep".

"It was one of the craziest experiences of my life!" In the video, one man can be spotted sidestepping a gate in the Marin Headlands, which may have been their access point to the bridge.

However, the act of the thrill-seekers revealed to the authorities that the multi-million dollar security system of Golden Gate Bridge has some gaps. "These climbers' reckless actions could have caused immeasurable harm to those driving below".

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, Highway and Transportation District sent out a news release Tuesday, describing the incident.
