  1. A good thing in my opinion. There are many sacred sites in the world to respect and not climb over and this is one more.

  2. I bet the native people are extremely happy to finally have peace and quiet on their sacred rock.
    It reminds me of Stonehenge. You can still visit but have to gaze from afar.

    1. It was more for cultural reasons – returning country (land) to local peoples. They claimed it was a sacred site and set a time limit before it (letting ‘tourists’ climb to the top) was to be prohibited….that day came two years ago.

  3. I can see how all the tourists were making an impact climbing the rock. Sandstone can be so fragile. where I live some tourist attractions needed to require reservations to keep control of the crowds.
