    Robustours who have fundraised and organised the new stone and gained permissions etc., are expecting possibly around 500 people to be there for a 9am start to walk to the summit. A few are taking kit up on Saturday and camping out as the forecast is still good...at the moment!They haveplanned/advised on car parking/sharing etc.
    A circular route mostly downhill

    Lots of other runners (and as my case ex-runners!)up there on a variety of routes, not so many lingered as it was bitterly cold, so a fairly regular stream of comings and goings kept the core of about 120 on the top. New stone looks good and is fixed with land anchors, so it won't be disappearing like the last one. Good bit of coverage from Border TV.
