Apparently, if it is theirs, I'm not going to violate their wishes..
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/8/07 - 5:17:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't climb it if they preferred I didn't.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/8/07 - 6:27:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
I could find other places to climb.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/8/07 - 6:30:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Tough one, I'd really like to climb it.

I'd wait until nobody was looking.

14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/8/07 - 8:22:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
Infact, when I visited Uluru, I did not climb it. But, there were many people there who did, and I found it very disrespectful.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/8/07 - 8:27:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not quite enough of an imperialist to trample the wishes of other cultures just yet.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 10/8/07 - 11:09:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't climb it even if it was allowed...
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 10/9/07 - 12:12:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldnt climb it if they expected me to respect their wishes.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 10/9/07 - 1:34:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't climb it anyway. See, we'd get along great.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 10/9/07 - 1:43:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know. I would like to climb our giant rock, but I also don't want Dreamtime ghosts to haunt me.

They made fun of this on the Chasers, and started telling tourists it was disrespectful to climb Sydney harbour Bridge, because fat white men find it sacred. The funny thing is, they actually convinced some people not to climb.

I've climbed it..but back then the traditional owners didn't ask you not to do it.

They still let you climb if you want to..they just ask you not to..

I'm torn..would I do it again? maybe not..but it's an experience you'd never forget...I'm glad I got the chance.

Many local natives who live around the rock make their living from it. They rely on tourists coming in their bus loads, taking photos and watching staged corroborees.

The problem is, the rock is breaking. People that climb it damage it, and although its nothing major now, who knows what it will be like in 50 years time.

I'm indifferent, and least of all because of cultural issues, but more because of landmark heritage that can never be replaced once its gone. But put it this way, I wouldn't not go diving at the Barrier Reef or fishing in Arhnem Land because it might offend some natives. Its all good to sit there and say 'this land is ours', but its another thing all together to maintain that land. Who does that!? And I'm all in favour of providing the indigenous community work, and work as guides etc around ularu is ideal.

Depends. Do the UluruAnangu remove their hats in a Catholic Church?
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 10/9/07 - 5:32:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. But considering i'm very unfit. I dont think i would climb it anyway.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 10/9/07 - 7:04:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Owners'.

And maybe. I don't know.

I SOO want to. But we're learning about Aborigines in School and they're kind of scary and also they don't climb up my church so I guess I won't climb up their sacred place
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 10/10/07 - 3:36:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think I'd find something else to climb, in a case like this.

You have to pay 35 bucks to get in that park and so I'll climb what i damn well please
14 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/13/07 - 8:31:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I don't like heights.

Same here, there would be no temptation at all to climb it
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 2/23/08 - 10:51:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't. There are many sites, where you must pay to see but cannot climb/touch because they are fragile or sacred.

Tourists will still come, guides will still have jobs regardless of whether climbing is not allowed. It is absolutely stunning simply to see it.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 8/10/08 - 8:09:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't. It's their sacred site, so I'll respect their wishes.
There's plenty of other places I could climb.
