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.

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.

Mike soloed this, and had a mini-avalanche let loose under one of his feet. He got across safely and then belayed me over.

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.
