25 yo creeper but we had a long winter that was cold in zone 10. It’s late May and only one vine has bud or leaves. The other 2 creepers on my property are the same.

It is just aging. The vine will become less vigorous as it gets older. The cold won't really bother them much.

It may be time to dig up old vines and replant if possible. Otherwise, restorative pruning, which can be quite drastic, will help them to get the most out of them.
