5.4 'chimney' was more of a face climb.
offwidth - pretty well protected (2s and 3s). probably didn't even need the 4 but placed it anyway. we did take a #4 and found it useful in several places on the climb. some face holds on the top part of the pitch that helped.
hand traverse pitch - awesome! but tricky with a backpack!
last pitch 5.9 is also a gem. protects well, and if you run it out for the crux 10ft or so, you have holds up to a jug.
