I climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge with my guide, Jackson Mitchell with two last names. Jackson is super happy and has been guiding people up this 52,000 ton steel structure daily for six years. And, he’s smiling from ear to ear! There are over a thousand steps to get to the top of the bridge. At first you think, boy, this sounds tiring! But, it’s not what you expect. You climb 40 or so steps at a time and come to a catwalk where you go along, stop, and take in the view of the breathtaking harbor, and listen to Jackson tell great stories that make you appreciate the bridge and the climb even more. Then that catwalk connects to another staircase up, another catwalk and the same drill continues until over 1000 steps are behind you and you feel fantastic at the top of the bridge. I climbed Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa a couple years back. I looked up at the top from a distance with my friends and said, ”that looks really doable.” Turns out, it was very much a vertical climb, big, jagged, blood thirsty for knees, rocks were the steps, no catwalks, no guide with even one last name and we barely rested. It nearly killed us all but we got to the top and fell over after we said, “WE DID IT! (obviously, none of us were expert climbers) So, why is how we get to the top more important that getting to the top?
