A compact outcrop which reaches a maximum height of 16m. Ivy Buttress(HS)is about the best of a small number of climbs. Reasonably popular with organised groups and provides the best concentration of climbing that the Malvern Hills can offer. Other craglets and quarries can be found along the length of the Malvern Hills, all of which are detailed in the guide, but there is little to tempt the serious climber.
Ivy Scar Rock is easily approached via the footpath leading south from the Clock Tower car park in Great Malvern.
