Description 

Amphitheater climbs are one of the closest to the parking lot and are easily accessible from the railroad tracks via a marked trail.

Getting There 

As you walk from the parking area along the railroad tracks, the Amphitheater climbs are visible on the left from the trestle. The trail leading directly to Pegasus and Chia starts just before the bridge.

Featured Route For Amphitheater Area
Chia Direct, Feb 28th 2009

Chia Direct WI4+  NH : *NH Ice and Alpine Climbing : ... : Amphitheater Area
To the right of the pretty, right leading line of least resistance in the middle of the Amphitheater which is Chia there is a much more direct and intimidating line... Chia Direct climbs steep ice from below the finish of Chia straight up... That's really all to be said as far as description of the route but it is worthy to note that conditions can be a bit variable from candled and not too great for protection to a nice solid wall of ice...Have fun......[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
