Don't be afraid to lead this one as the pro is good. Just bring a long sling for your last piece of pro if you are linking it with Sacherer Cracker or Mark of Art.

Wow, did this one b.i.t.d.! HB nuts worked well for this. Stemming in a small dihedral if I remember correctly. Easier (5.9) climbing above to anchors
