This is a list of routes from the original 'Cold Climbs' book. Only routes that were described in each section are listed here - i.e. routes are not included just because there was an image in the book of them.
For Beinn Udlaidh only the routes that were specifically recommended in the text are included as the book is non-specific.
For Clogwyn du Garnedd/Snowden all the routes in the diagram are included.
