Philippe Petit Sydney Harbour Bridge 1973 #1
...The first challenge confronting us was breaking into the metal cages that protected the entrances to the Harbour Bridge pylons. This was achieved by Philippe climbing up a wall of latticed metal and cutting a hole in it with a hack saw high up that was big enough for us to crawl through. The hole needed to be high up so that we could, when we had finished our night’s work, replace the bars, superglue them back into position (repainting the joints gray to make our work invisible) so that no Bridge workmen would get wind of our illegal entry. There were some locks to be opened in various doors also but they presented no problem to Philippe - the picking of locks being amongst Philippe’s many skills. Getting in and out of the pylons over the following four or five nights proved to be the least of our problems!
