Perhaps we should dip some 3-peakers in formaldehyde and display them as an installation. Artistic kudos and megabucks for us.....less litter, erosion and human waste for the hills.
Having never visited I have no idea if the summit of Scafell Pike is an idyll apparently untouched and unvisited by people.
.....but if I was to extrapolate from Scottish munros there will be a baggers' trench running to and from the summit, litter artistically crammed into a summit cairn constructed by OCD bobble-hatted maniacs, a smell of urine on a hot day.....oh and a 4ft high concrete pillar plonked there by cartographers.
Now if the guy had nicked a stone from Beinn a Chearcaill's lovely Torridonian sandstone summit area I would be peeved.
....but as for the hillwalker/OS scarred popular summits?? There are bigger fish to fry.
