Found this hard, didn't fancy lead with what looked like minimal gear....Tough thin move. If Ringing Groove is 5B then this should definitely get 5C!! Far more strenuous.

One tricky move (which wasn't actually that hard, but quite bold), then juggy aceness to the top

Not sure about year. Think this was my first E1. I fell off but got back on and led it fine.
