Climb Uluru (Ayers Rock)?

Jump to last reply

This question may have been asked many times before, but I just did a search and didn't find any recent answers to this question.

I know that the Aboriginals try to discourage people from climbing Uluru. I understand that it is a sacred place for them.

My question is this: Exactly how much pressure is put on people not to climb? What is the atmosphere like if you do choose to climb? Is there an Aboriginal posted at the trailhead asking you not to climb?

I will be at Uluru for two days. It will probably be the only time in my life that I will be there.

Is the climb even worth the possible guilt of climbing?

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

Keith
