This route climbs the easy slab just left of Coatimundi Whiteout's start.
Pitch 1: 5.9 R/X - Start on the easy slab below Waterstreak delight. Climb up about 15 feet left of Waterstreak and start running it out clipping 3 bolts as you head to Kingpin's second pitch belay. This pitch is about 180 feet. You can add a pitch and belay about 50 feet up, but I HIGHLY recommend against this option.
Pitch 2: 5.7 R - Climb the face just right of Kingpin's 3rd pitch towards the large flake crack shared by Coatimundi Whiteout and Waterstreak Delight.
Pitch 3: 5.9+ - Traverse over to Kingpin's 4th Pitch and climb the face of Kingpin.
Pitch 4: 5.10 - Climb up Kingpin's final corner and make an awkward left exit early to a beautiful overhanging green corner.
Start just left of Coatimundi Whiteout (second bolted line to left)
Pitch 1 is easy but no protection really. Pitch 2 is runout and the bolts are garbage: take caution. The rest is adequately protected.

All bolts replaced. This climb no longer deserves the 'X' rating, but I'd still consider it quite 'R'. Please climb lightly on the loose holds.

The route is really quite fun but I feel probably gets overlooked. Pitch 2 is your typical GM face with a little added spice.
