    This only happens when using paint geometry tool.

    The spire is actually still there ( I can walk on it ) but not visible.
    Any fix?

    Do you have a leak in your map at all?

    This is almost certainly a leak. You can still walk on the "spire" because you're colliding with the blockbullets brushes, not the prop itself. In addition, you mention the "paint geometry tool" which means you created displacements, and those do not seal a map (unlike the world brushes you created them from). If this is the case, you need to add more world brushes under the displacements to seal the hole they created.
