It was an amazingly beautiful day here in the Valley. bluebird sunny and it even got up to the low 40's. I've been checking out Black Pudding every week this winter and it never came IN, until last Thursday. I kept trying to get friends to go over & climb it, but everyone was busy until today when I sucked Brad in. I was worried that I wouldn't be climbable, but I was wrong. Turns out that it was in very reasonable shape. I don't know how long it will last, but if you want it I suggest grabbing it immediately.
