If climbing frozen turf is your thing then head to Scotland. There was a humorous account in Alpinist 24 or 25 on Scottish winter climbing.
Also found this gear description on a UK site -
"Mixed Climbing - ...Properly frozen turf is a revelation to climb on with placements as secure as ice and even at times offering protection for ice hooks or "warthogs" basically old style drive-in thin ice pegs."
