A recent photo from the base of Uluru shows a line of tourists snaking up to the summit, all of them choosing to walk past the sign from traditional owners asking for them to respect their home and not do it.

In fact, the opposite is happening, with the ban on the climb coming in on October 26, tourists are flocking to the site by the hundreds and the impact on the environment and the spirit of the first nation people is big.
