I thought this was pretty nebulous until the last really cool dihedral section. Didn't seem to match up all that well with the topo in the Ruckman guide.
We climbed P1 of Pentapitch. From there, with a 70 meter went to near the end of the rope up the easy dihedral just left of Pentaptich. Belay was easy to set on a small ledge with a tree off to the side and a crack for a directional well above the huge ledge in the middle of P3 of Pentapitch. Forgettable 5.5ish pitch with some loose rock. After that, a long pitch up a pretty wild feeling dihedral and steep face to a tree just above the last anchor on pentapitch. Hard, strenuous, wild 5.8 and really worth doing after the blah opening.
