Slieve Main isn't much of a proposition on it's own and is best climbed along with it's bigger neighbour Slieve Snaght (see for first part of the walk). From Slieve Snaght it is an easy drop down south to the col with Slieve Main ( pic shows Slieve Main) This is rather wet with some peat hags and it is an easy half hour climb of 300ft over grass to the summit, a little bit rockier at the top. View is dominated by Slieve Snaght and its minor summit Slieve Snaghtbeg to the north, west to the Urris Hills and Ragtin More and south over Lough Swilly. I dropped down and contoured around the western side of Snaght to rejoin the route i had come up. 3.5 hours for the two mountains. Did not meet anyone else in what feels a quite remote area.
