Very good line, as with most spires climbs, consider taking a few more runners...

I would have found some pretty small gear helpful too.

Really fun climb. I agree - bring small gear. I placed a red, purple, and green Black Diamond C3 (along with bigger stuff in the beginning and at the end). Although fairly well protected throughout, you do have to commit to the stiff 5.9 crux with the last good gear placement a couple feet below you.
