Great trans-con to ring in the new year!
This appears to be a mistake fare that allows crazy trans-continental connections on top of the original PDX-LAX fare. As such, multiple crossings are possible that push the final CPM close to 1. Not for the faint of heart, but feel free to follow the thread with the original find on Flyertalk.
