Glad I found this one, it's a good route!  Nice variety of bike path, fun singletrack, rocky trail, woods, and above treeline with great views.  Got lucky with the weather this week and decided I needed to go for it before winter comes back.  Excellent temperature, from the chilly pre-dawn start to the cool (and calm!) summit, finally slightly warm in the afternoon on the descent but soon it was dark again.  Thought I might break 12 hours but faffed around too much with my water stash and reorganization (near Shultz Tank).  Maybe next time?
