Ascent Trip ReportParked on ACH in the pull out across the road from Buckhorn Ski & Board Club. Hiked in past the club and up the trail to the crest of the trail and from there went straight up XC to Peak 7243. From there we continued XC along the ridge,across a small saddle and up to Peak 7190(here was a nice campsite w/a cooking fire ring). From there we dirt surfed down the wide open North/West slope to the Foothill Ski Club hut(it's unlocked and clean inside).Continued down until we hit the dirt rd. Followed it around the hairpin to the saddle and then XC up some steep stuff to the ridge leading up to the summit of Kratka Ridge. Here we took a break then headed back down to the dirt rd and out to ACH, walking back to the car on the Hwy.
