Important question: What instrument(s) will play this? Is this from a
part or a full score?

Sorry, I should have included that. I edited out a bunch of wordiness in my email and that went with it.

It's for cello, and just the part, no score.

It's a transcription of the violin part of the violin+piano arrangement of Danse Macabre. For the violin, it's up an octave and the problem I have with it doesn't arise -- it's comes out much the same as tenor clef. Lots of it can't be reasonably written without treble clef, so being capable in that clef is necessary; the high note I think is a'' / A5 (the A just above the top of the treble staff).

Looks fine IMO.

I also got rid of some elaboration of why I thought this was a problem in the first place, which is that I find it difficult to see the line of the top notes there; to me, the inter-note intervals are kind of buried amidst a ton of stems and staff lines and such. In fact, that actually held one of just two typos I've found that made it through all my proofreading and to the point where I started to actually work from the part. But who knows... maybe I'm the odd one out here and most people *wouldn't* have any problem with it; maybe I'm too stuck up on the fact that I made a typo and am trying to overcorrect.
