Are you aware that Uluru was "climbed" back in the 70's? The route went up the Kangaroo Tail, and from memory started with quite a long chimney. I think the rest of the route went up a water gully. I'm fairly sure there were no bolts (not a lot of other gear either!) as keeping a low profile (orange t-shirts, orange-painted gear!) was critical after being ordered off the rock at shotgun point on a previous attempt!
