Didn't Dick Smith recently say that he'd pay people's fines if they wanted to climb it?

"The spirit of Australian adventure is not so easily quelled, however. Having failed to overturn the climbing ban in the courts, Smith has supported a stealth campaign for others to retrace his steps, offering to pay the potential $5000 fine. Should a Lord Howe islander try, there’s a trophy and round-the-world ticket to be won. Two parties of climbers have sailed from Sydney so far this year to ­illegally scale the pyramid and other expeditions are being planned for when the wild winter weather eases."
