The way down The Bone is marked by a line of stones with rusted iron fence posts at regular intervals. the photo shows part of this line on the lower slopes of The Bone but it reaches most of the way to the top of the mountain. It could be a useful aid in bad conditions. Please note the track down is slightly to the west of the line of stones but if you can stay within 5-6 meters of it you won't go far wrong.
