Hiden Amphitheater, Lock Haven - 1/30/2011

Randy Edelman passed me this conditions report: Met up with Bob and Earl from Middletown to climb Hidden. Bob led the first pitch which was thin in spots but fun just the same. I led the second pitch which was in fine shape (good stuff). I got on the third pitch only to realize that the curtain was fractured all the way across at the bottom, maybe a foot thick of brittle ice, and also not well bonded at the top. I backed off and went up far left to set up a toprope. Even the toprope was somewhat unnerving. Beware! Bob and Earl then went to roadside. Maybe they can follow up this report with pics and more info.
