Since 1 November last year we have posted over 70 articles about the Climb.
These have demonstrated:
- The "We never Climb"/"We don't Climb" message is fake news.
- Cultural concerns about climbing are only a recent invention and were not held by past Traditional Owners who knew more about Aboriginal Laws than the current Board.
- The Board has broken a promise made by past Traditional Owners.
- The ban on climbing is immoral and illegal
- Visitor statistics are unable to justify the ban.
- The climb is a low risk activity for fit and healthy people who stick to the marked trail.
- Parks Australia have failed in their duty to protect park heritage
- The views are worth the effort.
- Stories about the climb are inspirational
- Other natural places are under threat.
Thanks for reading and make sure you spread the message. The case for the proposed ban continues to unravel. Not sure what will be left of it in 473 days time, other than red faced bureaucrats laying barb wire across the base of the Climb.
