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. In April 2008, the bridge was scaled by two Sausalito men and an Oakland woman to protest China's treatment of Tibet and the impending arrival of the Olympic torch.

"I don't want to say too much about how we got past security", Teatime said.

Teatime and Rector snuck down the Marin Headlands, along the bridge, and once the sun set, climbed the bridge's suspension stays from the shore.

According to the DailyMail, the teenagers were able to climb the structure 746-foot structure in about ten minutes, after slipping under security fences unnoticed.

"My mindset is that I do not want to put people at risk, or property.

The reckless behavior of the individuals who performed this stunt does not distract from this fact", Clemens said. 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.

At the news conference, Golden Gate Bridge Patrol Captain Lisa Locati said the duo's "path of travel did not trigger any alarms".

Weather is near ideal for a launch from Kennedy Space Center this evening, with a 90-percent chance of favorable conditions. The successful launch was broadcast live over the internet on Monday. "In maritime, our system is actually integrated".

"This incident raises questions about how such an unauthorized climb was possible and the potential harm to drivers below if one of the climbers had fallen onto the roadway", Priya David Clemens, of Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District, said.

Golden Gate Bridge officials became aware of the stunt a week and a half ago when they saw the video online, authorities said. He also pointed out that he and his friend did not harm anyone or damage any property.

Additionally, other steps could be taken against the climbers. Climbing the bridge is a misdemeanor that can carry punishment of a year in jail or a $10,000 fine.

Teatime said he respects law enforcement officials and wasn't trying to stir up any trouble. "We weren't doing anything wrong", he says, adding that he can offer bridge officials tips on improving security.

"Climbing the bridge wasn't even the highest thing I have climbed - but it was definitely the coolest", he confessed.

"To us, it's not nerve-racking", he said. "I think we're the first to ever do flips up there", he boasts.
