Climbed and skied Malemute from Cathedral lake TH. There's some avalanche debris around 10,600 feet, but it doesn't present a major obstacle. Continuous snow starts around 11k and the summer trail is still covered except for the steep section just before the lake. With the good freeze today, the route was bootable. Without freeze or after snow warms up in the PM you will be swimming in the snow. Cathedral coverage is still good, with some avy debris in both Pearl and East face couloir. Malemute was mostly debris free (NW face). Pix of Castle, Cathedral and the basin are attached. Lake is still frozen (crossed it). Register needs to be replaced.
