    At 3,261 feet (994 metres), Glyder Fach is the sixth highest in Wales. It is a challenging push to the summit but you a rewarded with astonishing views once there, especially on a clear day. The scenery to the west is breathtaking! Being so close to the edge of a mountain provides excellent views over Snowdonia - and straight down!

    Number seven of the Welsh 3000s, the Glyder Fach is only a little lower than its nearest neighbor, the Glyder Fawr. The rocky summit is famous for the 'Cantilever Stone', a shallow balanced rock looking similar to a springboard.
