You're talking about PV here. All it takes is a ranger who wants a pat on the head from PV bigwigs, and there will be photos plastered everywhere of people climbing on Taipan with the headline "Climbers reject cultural heritage protection regime". The fact that paragraph 3 clause 2 subpoint iii technically allows you to access Taipan from the top means you can't be personally punished, but you would definitely be receiving a thankyou note from PV for making their life a lot easier.
