Thanks to Paul Sivyer for adding this peak.

A great peak to scramble or walk up in North Wales. Glyder Fach is part of a brilliant accessible mountain ridge walk. PS

Overlooking the spectacular Ogwen Valley, Glyder Fach is usually climbed along with Glyder Fawr as part of the traverse of the Glyderau Ridge or as a finish to the rough scramble up Bristly Ridge which ends not far from the summit.

The easiest way up is from the vicinity of Llyn caseg-fraith, itself reached from Pen y Gwryd to the South or from the Ogwen Valley via either Cwm Tryfan or Llyn Idwal and Bwlch Tryfan - a fine route. The summit is a maze of boulders and features the much photographed Cantilever - a huge slab of rock balanced on boulders. PB
