/ Widely Tortuous!!
With gale force south-easterlies, I would go almost anywhere else!
Does that mean one is likely to proceed like a tortoise?

I thought it meant you walked like John Wayne.
It seems that everywhere else, including the Southern Uplands and the Lakes are partaking in a bit of Guantanamo action too! North west crag, bailing down an easy gully and watch for windslab it is!
If you can drive to it, a short walk from the road would be my guess. I'm sure the Cobbler wouldn't disappoint (have you still to do Recess?)
Creag An Socach would also be on my list.
I noticed you did Lomond Corner, nice one.
Aye, still on the list, as is Endrick Corner and Right Angle Gully Direct now.
Did you see Endrick Corner then, pretty obvious isn't it??
With such strong SE winds, the snow often doesn't settle in Sneachda enough to cause avalanches, just pummels you in the face as you try to get up after being blown off your feet.
