One way car shuttle, starting at the Green trailhead (Sitka Spruce Trail).  Hike trail to Absolute last Promontory, then follow ridge to summit.  Then bushwack over every minor subsummit on the way to Moolock.  From Moolock, follow ridge east, drop down to road and follow ~5 miles back to car at Bessemer trailhead.

A very challenging trip, we will start in the dark, and move quickly on all the trail sections, and likely finish with headlamps on the road back to the car (with it getting dark so early).

Snowshoes, ice ax, helmet, microspikes (or possibly crampons).

I mapped the route on GaiaGPS, and it says  it's 13 miles and 6000' gain.  I think that's off a bit, probably more miles, and less elevation gain.  My best guess is 14 miles and 5000 gain.
