Climbing the rock is a long established Australian cultural tradition that dates from the 1870s. One that celebrates the unique geology, geomorphology, scenery and culture of central Australia. It is an expression of our exploring spirit, our quest for knowledge and enlightenment, and a test of our physical abilities. Millions of Australians and international visitors have become part of this unique cultural tradition.
We have a right to Climb it and celebrate our long standing cultural traditions unfettered by irrational beliefs and overly restrictive bureaucratic management practices that have arbitrarily closed the climb for over 80% of the time in the past 12 months.
Closing the climb will be the death of the National Park as if you haven't climbed it, you haven't really visited it. If you can't climb it, it's not worth going.
We all have a right to climb.
