Threatening messages on signs would be counter-productive, it would be a red rag and has in any case been tried and failed.

I fail to see how a sign indicating that one would be trespassing and liable to prosecution if they climbed the hill counter-productive at all. What it needs is the culprits to be actually brought to book instead of everybody just mamby-pambying around them all the time. WHY is nobody being prosecuted? There is much more to this than meets the eye it seems to me.
Maybe it's because while the NT are happy for the likes of Jim Leary to condemn people climbing the hill on their behalf, but allowing paying customers such as film crews to scale the hill for commercial reasons then they are going to win zilch in the courts on the grounds they claim. They can't have it both ways and are taking the piss at the hill's expense!
