I drove into the Sierra Ancha, but couldn't decide between Armer Mountain or Pocket Creek. Flip of a coin. Heads: Armer Mountain. While hiking up the burned out canyon I considdered turning around. Well, maybe it'll get prettier... Once out of the canyon, it did. Nice views of the southern part of the range and green forest. The views from the saddle at mile 2 hooked me. There were a few small clefts in the cliffs at the saddle that I wanted to check for ruins. But, no time, and I just didn't feel like dying from a fall. I had 4 pm as my turn around time, summit or not. Made the summit at 4 sharp, and went over to the edge of the summit cliff to check out the incredible view
Ok, the view made the whole hike worthwhile
Made it down in an hour and 15 min, just at dark.
