Climbed via the Great Break in July 2010 with a group of five climbers of various ability levels. Everybody loved it. The Goat trail, Snow Moon and Falling Leaf lakes, the total lack of scree slogging after the first hour, fun class 4 climbing in the Great Break. Who doesn't love this route? One of my favorites.

Also climbed June 21 2006 and June 22 2007.
One of my favorite climbs in the park. Allen is the second largest mountain by mass in the park (behind Rising Wolf) and you get to explore most of it. I have always ascended via Snow Moon basin and descended to Cracker Lake. Early in the season there is an incredible snow field that allows you to drop 3000 vertical feet. Great fun!

Great route, fantastic summit views. Was surprised at how much easier the climb up the Great Break was - lots of great handholds the entire way. descended into the large basin north of the summit towards Lake Josephine; stay above the treeline and head north towards the Many Glacier Hotel for as long as possible! I headed down far too early and found myself climbing down near waterfalls and bushwhacking through alder thickets. I literally stumbled into the Piegan Pass Trail after crashing through the woods for a bit - glad to hit the trail!

This was a LONG day. Started by hiking to Cracker Lake, and then ascended the long, and tiring, scree slopes to the summit. Views were incredible, and I hated to leave but storm clouds said otherwise. I decided to "shortcut" the descent by going down the north side, towards Josephine Lake. I did make good time until I hit treeline and then the nightmare began. The next mile was endless downfalls and brush that took about two hours to pick my way through. When I came out on the trail leading to Piegan Pass, I was one happy camper. All in all, this was a memorable traverse of this huge mountain. Try it for a different experience.

Excellent morning trip from Cracker Lake to the summit. The spectacular views and solitude (not another person up on the peak) combined to make a memorable day in Glacier.
