Short Summary created by simon3, Colin Murphy,  16 Oct 2017
Parking in a small quarry 3km to the east at point C444 372 A, cross the smaller top of Damph and then head north, curving around the valley until you cross a fence at C425 380 B then begin to ascend again towards the west. A further 1km will bring you to the top, although it is difficult to identify which is actually the highest point. Ignore a couple of cairns which do not sit on the precise top and scout around towards the south east of the broad boulder-speckled top where you will see a pile of stones supporting a single spearhead shaped stone. GPS readings indicate this to be the highest point. You may return by the same route but the usual walk takes in the top's bigger neighbour, Slieve Snaght. The Damph-Main-Snaght walk takes approximately 4.5-5 hours. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/427/comment/5186/
