The geological structure of this crag means some of the large flakes (esp. the finishes of routes on the right wing) are unstable. Belayers should be aware that leaders have occasionally pulled flakes off during an ascent.
Common Raven have nested at the crag in recent years. The nest which is usually partially hidden on the vegetated terrace to the left of the main left wall is protected by The Wildlife and Countryside Act (1981). To avoid damage to nests, the birds, or their eggs during this sensitive period the BMC advises climbers to avoid Muggles Buttress and The Tree Walls from 1st February to mid-May.

The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) is the representative body that exists
to protect the freedoms and promote the interests of climbers, hill walkers and
mountaineers, including ski-mountaineers. The BMC recognises that climbing, hill
walking and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death.
Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be
responsible for their own actions.
