Ascent Trip Report

Visited Ayers Rock/Uluru and Kata Tjuta/the Olgas on an amazing 2 week Greyhound Bus tour of Australia as part of a longer family holiday visiting relos in Oz.

Stayed in a shack at the base of the rock that called itself a Youth Hostel and had a great time circumnavigating and then climbing the monolith. Nowadays the indigenous locals discourage climbing it on religious grounds but I have mixed feelings about that - I too have love, respect and reverence for the land but practice it in different ways (Leave No Trace, contributing towards maintenance and conservation, etc); I can't believe exclusion is the answer.
