I think he is saying the allen head is stripped or rounded out.

I want to say you can use a pair of vise grips to grab the pin in the middle between the pads and work it loose that way

if it is the bolt I'm thinking it is

You should be able to break it loose like AJ1500 said.
just take caliper loose from fork(2 bolts) May have to push pads out to get pliers in it.
Turn the caliper on its side or upside down. install vise grips and break loose. This my opinion! Vise Grip brand works best. But any MAJOR brand should be ok.
