Climbers tackling Uluru (Ayers Rock)

I had heard that the Uluru climb was steep, but I didn't realise that it would look _that_ steep. The Uluru Anangu (the local Aboriginal people who own the rock) prefer that visitors do not climb it for two reasons: 1. the path crosses over an important Tjukurpa (the Dreaming) site; and 2. Anangu as custodians feel a sense of responsibility for visitors and their safety. There have been a number of fatalities due to climing Uluru.
