      Cable Saddle is the more accurate term, but yes, this will be atop of the tower of the self anchoring suspension bridge.

      Thank you! I suspected as much. Fun to see it just sitting there.

      Great find! It's one part of the bridge that just about everybody will not ever get up close to, or even see. Capturing the ladder gives some perspective to how massive this component is.

      At the other end of the spectrum... here is a double main cable saddle that can be held in your hands. It is to a 350' long suspension footbridge.

      looks like a neat piece of engineering.
