Great climbing, worthy of all the stars in Randy's new book.
The gear is quite fiddly and strenuous to place, so definitely a heads up lead. There are good gear placements when needed, but the crack is often flaring so the are plenty of bad placements to be had as well.
Do the direct finish, but stay just right of the bolts. I got suckered left of the bolts and made it harder than need be.
