Ivy Scar Rock

West Midlands

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;

Took daughter out on her first outdoor climb in August19. Steel spike anchor points at top feel pretty secure.
Plenty of tourists to watch your struggles. If you fancy a quiet climb I suggest avoiding weekend afternoons.
