Allen Mountain from Lake Josephine North Shore Trail. A descent route exists down this side, but involves some tricky bushwhacking that likely cannot be avoided. Work down from the summit through cliffs and angle towards the drainage on the far left of the photo. Follow that drainage down, and find a place to traverse to the north, meandering between the thick forest to your left and cliffs to your right. Eventually, you'll have to bushwhack downhill a short distance to gain the Piegan Pass horse trail; it'll likely involve a cacophony of alder trees, but it's really the only viable way back to civilization from this point.
