The standard route is class 2 and drops down a bit east of the more technical Rabbit Ridge route.  Either route may be used for the FKT.
 

Editor's Note: Many Colorado 14ers should not be considered “backcountry” where you can go anywhere you want; their popularity can create a plethora of braided social paths that lasts for decades in the fragile tundra.  So if there is a trail, please stay on it. Hundreds of volunteers with the Fourteeners Initiative work really hard to protect our beloved mountain environment.
