Me Top Roping At Ivy Scar Rock, Lyndsay Belaying © elitex099
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.
A free downloadable PDF guidebook is available online. Ive Scar can be found on page 10 & 11;
Ivy Scar Rock is easily approached via the footpath leading south from the Clock Tower car park in Great Malvern.
The land upon which all the outcrops lie, is owned and managed by the Malvern Hills Conservators. This organisation was created and empowered by an Act of Parliament and by local councils to preserve the hills for all to enjoy. As such, they have no objection to climbing, but they do request that a courtesy call be made to their offices (in person or by telephone) prior to climbing. Priors Croft, Great Malvern. (01684)892002
