Last hurrah  Sucess!

Wanted to climb before it's closed forever next year, and grateful to have been successful. Also glad to have made it up before the track was shut by wind in mid-morning... was incessantly blasted when reaching the summit plateau and it, more than the gaggle of Japanese tourists, detracted from enjoying the spectacular environment.

Unique  Sucess!

Nothing compares to this rock.

Studying Abroad  Sucess!

Climbed while studying abroad in Melbourne back in 2002. Made great friends with group of Japanese people whose only English was baseball players names so we basically just stated MLB rosters all the way to sunrise on stop

Walkabout  Sucess!

During my month and a half bumming around Oz I also wandered around the Alice Springs area visiting King's Canyon, climbing Uluru and around its base. What an amazing landscape!

Sunrise on the top  Sucess!

Enjoyed the solitude of climbing in the dark and watching the sun rise from the top. Hiked the loop trail in Kings Canyon too and would recommend that as well.

Debatable  Sucess!

Visited both places as well as King's Canyon, quite incredible environment, very different from anywhere else I've been. Climbed Uluru though others in my party chose to do the base hike. I learned that there are no hard and fast rules in the local aboriginal community about climbing Uluru, except that you have the right mentality when making the journey. And I felt I had that and experienced it as I should.

Nice.  Sucess!

It indeed was some experience to walk up on that rock and enjoy the view out to the desert. Going down did give me some sore muscels, though.

beautiful & windy  Sucess!

On our 25th wedding anniversary trip to Australia, greatly enjoyed (with my wife) the spectacular rock formations despite the strong winds. We were lucky in that we were even allowed to climb Ayers Rock so close to sunset (it had been closed to all climbers on the day of our visit due to rain & wind). Highly recommended for anyone visiting "down under."

Aboriginal land 2

Although it is very touristic, it is a beautifull rock. We hiked around it, but did not climb it out of respect with the natives.

Route Climbed: Normal  Sucess!

Climbed a long time ago but never forget it. In fact i use it as profile image (see http://www.summitpost.org/image/148944/pablo.html).

With all my respects to aboriginal community, i think mountains don't belong to anybody and they belong to everybody as far as we are respectful. It was an amazing, beautiful and magical climb anyhow.

Aboriginal land

Been there in October 2005. Uluru, Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon... It was too hot to hike all around, but I've experienced the beauty of the rocks and nature. I would also advise people not to climb up.

While I was the only person to experience the beautiful sunrise atop Uluru that day, it is the only summit reached that I would take back if I could. Uluru is very sacred to the natives and I encourage others to consider this prior to climbing it.

Valley of the Winds track and Uluru base walk  Sucess!

These places are spectacular and an unforgettable experience.

The Valley of the Winds is the only place where I had to *really* use my fly net. I had managed without up until there, but here I finally had to succumb to these bloody bastards :-)

Ages ago  Sucess!

I hiked Uluru back in 1985 with a tour group at age 18. Coming down was quite an experience. I came back in 1987 and climbed it again. The youth hostel in Alice was a crazy place back then. Is it now?
