Grampians Access 2019 19-Jun-2019 At 10:41:41 PM Dave J
ODH this fight your talking about. Its like a PV child shaking up a bottle of climbers and traditional owners to see if they fight. I will not partake.

If a site is sacred to traditional owners, I dont want to climb there, end of story. If me climbing somewhere is inconvenient to PV development plans, that bother me not at all.

I have spent about 3000 days in the grampians in non-tourist areas and on 3 occasions I have seen someone who wasn't a climber. 0.1% is odds I can take.

If it turns out that traditional owners and PV ideas of significant areas and zoning are truly in alignment, I won't contest that. I wlll just sell and move

PS as a children are currently being challenged by reading articles in the newspapers about themselves, as climbers, being racist vandals, poo dumpers, rock crushers, eco-terrorists, etc... Without being black or gay this might be as close as they ever get to vilification and stereotyping. maybe this is good soft entry-point to that world (and healthy scepticism of main stream media) for them. This may be the key take-away positive of the current victorian climbing shut-down experience for me.
