Glyder Fach
Glyder Fach is the second highest of the Glyderrau. It is best known for the Cantilever Stone - a huge slab that appears to be precariously balanced, although its outstretched end has actually proved to be quite stable. The Bristly Ridge to the northeast is an airy scramble which can be avoided on the east side; it links to Tryfan.
