I, very easily, persuaded General Dan, a good friend, and an USNational Guard A-10 pilot to scout a trailless route up Allen from Elk Lake. My hiking partner and I reviewed his missile camera video recording and were inspired to head West from the 3200 foot contour on the Marcy Brook Trail. We climbed Little NippleTop, actually a large cube of exposed rock 20 ft high, McDonnel, and finally Allen, my 46th and my partner's first. 1992
He flew low to give us some excellent views. Lots of blow down SW of Allen - avoid.
