I agree with you that bans should be minimised, however there hasn't been time to develop a nuanced approach. The imperative for Parks Vic right now is to do something about this that indicates they are treating the issue of cultural protection seriously. They've just hit it with a sledgehammer. Once this blows over and they're under less pressure, they'll be in a position to work with us to clarify and refine things to allow climbing where possible. We need to make sure that when that time comes, they feel they can trust the climbing community to stick to the negotiated outcome. Impatience will just make the situation worse.
There are enough climbers nowadays that they cannot pretend that indiscriminate bans have no victims, but if we're honest, we've been pretending that climbing has no impact (IMHO).
