    Uluru climb to be banned on cultural grounds

    Climbing Uluru in Australia’s red centre will end, traditional owners and national park managers have announced.

    The historic decision came on Wednesday after a management board meeting of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta national park voted unanimously to ban the contentious practice from October 2019.

    They asked visitors to understand the new rule, a long-held request of traditional owners who said they had previously felt “intimidated” into allowing the culturally inappropriate practice to continue.

    Can climbing a rock really ever be culturally inappropriate? Where's the invisible line when it comes to these things?
