Cold Climbs Compleaters

We do not know of any Cold Climbs "Compleaters", but it is a perfectly feasible project, though given the recent mild winters, it would require a lot of being in the right place at the right time to collect the Welsh, Irish and Lake’s ones. Have you climbed all the Cold Climbs routes, or do you know anyone who has? Or have you just got some comments? If so please let us know!
