Climbing Allen Mountain's northeast ridge involves Class 3 & 4 climbing. Here the group traverses out onto the north face below the "great break," a crampy crack in the cliff face that offers cozy Class 3 climbing with plenty of exciting exposure. This is one of Glacier's most scenic and dramatic non-technical climbs (although inexperienced folks may require a rope on such terrain). Glacier National Park, Summer 2006.
