Glyder Fach

One of Wales’ most interesting peaks, Glyder Fach is the natural continuation from Tryfan on the exciting Cwm Bochlwyd horseshoe, and it’s loaded with quirky diversions. From the splinters of Castell y Gwynt, the tempting surfboard promontory of the Cantilever Stone, immense northern cliffs and the raked spine of the exceptional Bristly Ridge, Glyder Fach is an utterly unique mountain experience for reasons all its own.

Best route: from Tryfan’s south descent onto Bristly Ridge – then a continuation over Glyder Fawr and down the north-east ridge of Y Garn: the connoisseur’s mountain horseshoe.
