That's yet another of the problems for them . They realise that it has been done elsewhere ,earlier and with bigger rocks ,and where glaciation can't be used as a possible explanation .
Similar feats have been done in the recent past with much heavier stuff with the same type of equipment as would likely have been used in prehistory .There are ethnographic accounts , pics and film . It doesn't prove that the bluestones were transported by punters but it certainly shows it's not a problem . When the discussion turns away from glaciology it gets embarrassing. A bit like archaeos or footballers discussing the economy .

There was a failed attempt to drag a bluestone along the route which the glaciation camp may think was significant but there have been zillions of other better attempts that they somehow fail to mention. Having watched a load of unfit Stonehengineers jauntily row a sarsen 4 times heavier than a bluestone uphill I reckon bluestone transport was a piece of cake.
