And this is a rare occasion where ODH and me are in total agreement.

I believe in the value of Cultural Heritage but if you don't, there is also a totally pragmatic view: the Traditional Owners have the power here. There are legal rpowers relating to Cultural Heritage and current and pending Land Rights determinations. Then there are moral powers. Have a look at the Western Highway where a rag-tag camp has held up a multi-million dollar project for a couple of years. Imagine if Muline was unambiguously re-opened and a single TO set up camp under it in protest. That would just shut it down. That's the sort of power we are talking about.

The internet is a public space. What is said here is public and, trust me, every party with an interest in the climbing issue reads it. So think about what you are going to write and who is going to read it.
