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! 

142m, 7 pitches. A brilliant, sustained trip crossing the central section of the main cliff.
7 pitches - 5b,5a,5c,5b,5c,5c,4c. The third pitch descends the Alien chimney from the Rat Race belay. There is a trick to this involving the spike at the start of the main pitch of Positron.

M. Fowler, J. Stevenson Sep/1976.
