Nice bit of creative writing, although it would have been a little better if you had used some originality rather than the Ctrl Alt/Ctrl V function. I suspect there wasn't much option given the time of night in Brisbane after a lengthy day of surfing and other recreational ‘out of office’ pastimes (stereotyping is so much fun – isn’t it?).

If you want to make a point about white supremacy and how a bunch of marauding invaders ruined an entire country's worth of free admission camping sites, then that's your prerogative, but you should probably make those complaints to the ones with a voice - typically located in major cities such as the one you currently live in. They are easy to find - normal habitat: large government buildings, TV channels and self-promoting websites. Particularly active during the season known as 'Elections'. Surely one of those people with a base salary of $207K will talk to you…

As for this forum, it's run and engaged by a small minority of down trodden outdoor enthusiasts’ intent on enjoying the freedom of the hills. We are a different breed from the type of animal you have associated us with - the one that thrives on power, corruption and lies. In fact, we are so against that behaviour, we even named a climb after it.

If you have real issues with ‘the white privileged’ infiltrating the Grampians, then you should focus your attention on the hordes of tourist buses depositing them into the Wonderland Range, Staplyton, Halls Gap and Rosea areas on a weekly basis. While you are at it, take a look at all the little yellow paint marks drawn onto the natural rock directing these oppressors to Parks initiated bolted-in viewing platforms of their choice. Marvel at the amount of graffiti that these culturally inept individuals painstakingly illustrate onto the natural walls of these venues while devouring Halls Gap ice creams, and be amazed by the vandalism of the caves you speak of by the government agency responsible for accommodating them in the name of ‘managing an expanding and diverse estate covering more than 4 million hectares of Victoria’.

If you are in any doubt as to the culprits impacting Aboriginal artwork, then here’s a brief overview. Funnily enough, there’s no mention of climbers anywhere….
