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