It should be a choice. The rock was declared world heritage staus based on its geology. Then seven years later culture was added.

It is a shame that people can't climb Uluru because it is one of the best land marks in Australia.

Uluru is significant for all Australians
by: Anonymous

Uluru is a significant cultural landmark not just for the local Anangu tribe but for all Australians that cherish the length and breadth of this big brown land. While I am happy to acknowledge that Aboriginal culture inhabited this country first, they emigrated all those years ago from another location on this earth, the middle-east. I happily accept that Uluru is a sacred location to the Anangu, Uluru was around long before their arrival. Keep in mind that the first Anangu elder to take control of Uluru, Paddy Uluru, in 1973 said, "If tourists are stupid enough to climb the Rock, they’re welcome to it" and, "The physical act of climbing was of no cultural interest". If the original Anangu owner of Uluru had no issues with people climbing, why is it any different today? The climb should remain, it should be celebrated and maintained and government should honour Section 17 of the original lease agreement. Besides, keeping the climb open will continue the economic inflow for the Anangu tribe.
