Its just now that im getting into harder levels of trad where its not a casual carry a ton of gear 5.8 that i'm trying. Its more like a 5 pitch climb where 2 pitches are hand size pro while the other three are smaller, and its at my limit of leading ability. I just want to get up the route with as little gear on me as possible for weight purposes but still be able to bring more with me in case we need it later.

There are numerous 1000' routes where all that is needed is a standard rack of cams and nuts. You're approaching your problem from the wrong direction - you shouldn't be trying to figure out how to carry more gear; you should be improving your leading ability so that you don't need so much. Realistically, it sounds like you're not ready for the routes you are currently contemplating.
