From a press release:
Washington National Cathedral’s central tower, the pinnacles of which sustained significant damage during the August earthquake, will be reopened to the public for one day on Saturday, March 24, continuing the tradition of the “tower climb.” Participants will be able to take advantage of a spectacular view of Washington from atop the highest geographic point in the city. While the Cathedral is still undergoing restoration – and will be for years to come – the central tower has been deemed to be structurally sound and safe for visitors. The tower climbs have been a semi-regular tradition for many years.
The 333 steps from the ground to the top of the tower take approximately 45 minutes to climb and is not for the faint of heart nor those with a fear of heights. In addition to the spectacular views, climbers will also get an up-close demonstration of the Cathedral’s peal bells by the Washington Ringing Society and of the Cathedral’s carillon by Cathedral carillonneur Edward Nassor. Participation for the public is by reservation only through the Cathedral’s website.
Tickets are available online for $18 each.
