This is an excellent crack and a stiff 5.9 on lead because placing gear in the upper portion of the crack system carries a full "pump" value.
A standard NC trad rack is ideal with 0.4 and 0.5 BD cam's coming in big handy. NOTE: there is a diagonal crack on the left 'open book' face that you can easily see from the ground. You can place a #3 BD cam in the bottom of this crack to help protect the crux.
