Manual riddling is still done for Prestige Cuvées in Champagne... mechanised riddling equipment (a gyropalette) is used instead.
If one incubates it appropriately, it hatches into a molehill. The mass migration of larval molehills up glaciers, (also known as #@&^()! moraine) from their hatching colonies in the foothills to the breeding grounds in the upper ranges has been severely affected by both climate change (since this leads to perturbations in sex balance of mountain populations) and predatory peak-baggers, who prey on mature, breeding mountains in summer. The problems of Mountain collapse are now being addressed by some specific measures, including an an ambitious plan incubation of molehills on isolated sub-antarctic islands followed by re-introduction to sanctuary areas in the Himalaya patrolled by armed Kakapos, trained by Kea's of the elite NZSAS.
Those cliffs have a habit of sneaking up on you ninja-style. They're like grues in that regard.
