Mike Amato below the big snowfield on Broadway.  Photo taken on 8/1/04. This snowfield lies below the Windows/Obelisk routes, and blocks access from the top of Kor's Door over to the Crack of Delight rappels.<br>
<br>
Red dots show our route. Most of this section was wet and loose. Just after a short downclimb on the snow (not too difficult, but icy at the bottom) was a particularly slippery, loose and dangerous section marked by yellow dots.<br>
<br>
Mike soloed this, and had a mini-avalanche let loose under one of his feet.  He got across safely and then belayed me over.<br>

Traversing from the top of Kor's Door to the Crack of Delight rappels is NOT recommended: too many wet, loose, and dangerous spots (most with no anchors to belay) in addition to the one shown in the photo.
