What does this pitch go free at?

Did it 3 times. For me Glowering Spot and transition at Changing Corners (did 2 times) are more tricky and no more safety.

Did you stay in the right crack for the full pitch? At some point it is best to switch to the left crack, which is C1 (from my experience). I'm pretty sure it's at the piton visible in your photo below your feet.

Behind the grass are spaced but good placements and a few pins.
