Seals breed in Parliament House cave during the autumn months and climbers should take particular care not to disturb them during the time from late August to late October when the young seal pups can be eailsiy sepreated from their mothers with devastating consequences.

A large (huge!) rockfall occured at the back of Parliement House Cave in 2017 which affects some of the routes in the cave and further rockfalls are likley! 

Rockfax Description
A direct start and finish adds to the difficulty of this amazing route. Climb directly up to join The Long Run. Follow this until it moves out right. Place some runners and blast straight up the seam above, which proves to be continually taxing, until you latch the top of the cliff with some relief. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A short well-protected finale nudges the grade a notch. Many will find the original version contains the psychological crux.
