Ascent Trip ReportVisited 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 strongly discourage climbing it on religious grounds but I have mixed feelings about that - seems like an only slightly more worthy version of the Get Off My Land philosophy, I practice my reverence for the Earth in a different way.
