Dawn** E4 5c
[Rachel on Dawn, Bass Point, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
An exciting and slightly bold headwall is the main attraction of this pitch. The top pitch can be gained easily by abseil if the tides are not favourable. Start on sea-level ledges below the main buttress..
1) 4c, 16m. Traverse left and climb a crack in a slab to a ledge and belay below the steep headwall..
2) 5c, 18m. Climb up the headwall to a horizontal break and move right. Boldly climb the wall above to better holds and protection before finishing up a short lichen-covered wall. © ROCKFAX

Only did top half of route due to tides/swell, but didn't find a move harder than 4c. Looked like there was adequate gear, too.
