In good weather the route from Glyder Fawr towards Glyder Fach is quite obvious, however in poor visibility map and compass work maybe required. Description: Map sheet number 98 in the OS Landranger map series is the ideal map for planning your day trips and holidays to the Yorkshire Dales including Wensleydale and Upper Wharfedale. There are fabulous 360 views from the summits of Glyder Fawr and Glyder Fach, with the Snowdon massif to the southwest and the Carneddau and Anglesey to the north.
