People are discouraged by Uluru's traditional owners to climb the rock, but of course people freely climb it without any problems. You have to be fit and not suffer from vertigo (dizziness) or any medical condition restricting exercise.
The climb is closed when it's windy at the top, which of course makes sense.
There have been about 35 deaths relating to recreational climbing since records have begun.
Photography of Uluru.
The Anangu (the traditional people the Aboriginals who are in the area) request that visitors do not photograph certain sections of Uluru, for reasons related to traditional Tjukurpa beliefs.
These areas are the sites of gender-linked rituals in question. The photographic restriction is intended to prevent Anangu from inadvertently violating this taboo by encountering photographs of the forbidden sites in the outside world. Wikipedia.
Last time I visited Uluru I was taking a photo of one of the sacred sites, now called sensitive sites and my camera broke! Me being me, I just laughed.
Aboriginal myth, perhaps! There are many.
It is sometimes reported that those who take rocks from the formation with be cursed and suffere misfortune. There has been many instances where people who removed such rocks attempted to mail them back to various agencies in an attempt to remove the perceived curse. Wikipedia.

It's a long way up there.
A closer look. Different time of day hence the change in colour.
