Glyder Fawr is a mountain in Snowdonia located south-east of Llanberis, the second highest peak in the Glyderau range at 3,261 ft (994m). Situated near the summit is the Cantilever Stone, a large rock which from the correct angle appears to be precariously balanced, making it a popular place for photographs. Another notable feature, west of the summit, is Castell y Gwynt, (Castle of the Wind), a spiky rocky outcrop.
