Rock climber prepared to defy Uluru ban

A geologist is prepared to defy a ban on climbing Uluru that will be enforced from October.

The ban is being put in place due to cultural reasons because traditional landowners see it as a sacred site.

Geologist Marc Hendrickx has climbed the rock four times but says it is his right to be able to climb it whenever he wishes.

He believes he is not alone and that Parks Australia will have to put security in place to prevent them.

The minimum fine is expected to be $630 and Mr Hendrickx tells Ben Fordham he is prepared to risk it.

“In the overall context of going to Ayers Rock that cost is probably reasonable, in a way, to do one of the most remarkable experiences in the natural world you can undertake.”
