Reached the summit of Malemute Peak by gaining the ridge off of the upper Castle Creek TH. Pick the path of least resistance to gain the ridge. There is plenty of loose rock and dirt to hike through to gain the ridge. Once on the ridge, you can bypass the difficulties on the left (north) side, and there are some spots that will make you look for the safest way to go. No snow on the route at all. A very worthy summit, with a suspended view of Castle, Conundrum and Cathedral. The peak register needs to be replaced, as the cap is broken in two, and thus, the paper inside is trashed.
