Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

If poking it with a broom stick doesn't work then it must be pretty solid. Once you break it up you'll have to remove it. You need to try something heavier like a hammer or a steel pipe. Probably not enough room to swing a hammer in there so anything like a pipe or an ice chopper might work
