Here are two more from the early to mid 80s crew at attu





There is a large map of Attu at the loran-history site's attu page. It's a decent topographical map to get the challenge's prospective. Google earth had the straight line distance of over 13 miles. I'm sure it didn't include the 4000 feet up and down the mount Terrible, and not the others encountered. The daylight hours limited the challenge. Explorers were typically to be back at the unit two hours before sunset. Of course they always had that 625 foot marker with beacons if it started getting dark.
