Lateeve Hill Leataoibh A name in Irish
(poss. Ir. Leataoibh [OSI], 'hill-side') Kerry County, in Binnion List, Cross-bedded sandstone Bedrock

Height: 318m OS 1:50k Mapsheet: 70 Grid Reference: Q39999 03484 This summit has been logged as climbed by 15 members. Recently by: trekker, frankmc04, 3K_Fters, Fergalh, chalky, eamonoc, omurchu, Conor74, TadghKennedy, kmicheal, seamus64, wheresmyf-ingtea, kingstonian, dferris, simon3
I have climbed this summit: NO (You need to be a logged-in member to change this.)

Longitude: -10.338891, Latitude: 52.160466 , Easting: 39999, Northing: 103484 Prominence: 263m,   Isolation: 3.6km,   Has trig pillar
ITM: 439984 603539,   GPS IDs, 6 char: Lateve, 10 char: Lateeve
Bedrock type: Cross-bedded sandstone, (Coumeenoole Sandstone Formation)

The element leataoibh appears in the name of three townlands ranged along the northern slopes of this hill. No name is recorded for the hill by An Seabhac, but since the townland names are clearly topographical in origin, it seems reasonable to take Leataoibh as the name of the hill itself.   Leataoibh is the third highest hill in the Dingle West area and the 1107th highest in Ireland.

Do NOT take the "shortcut" through forestry!
by Conor74  1 Jul 2013
If you park in the laybys at the crossroads to the north of the summit, be careful. There is a short stretch of forestry on the direct route to the summit and the temptation will be to go through it. Now I have been through plenty of forestry in my time, but this one was hell on earth, tress densely packed, waist high furze growing through it, briars, tufts of ground that dropped up to above the waist when one took a step forward or back into the said furze. I set new records for swearing to myself, I hollered and howled, I praised arsonists and thought how from now on I will greet the sight of burning forestry with a new found joy, and when I emerged at the other side I was like a pin cushion with lots of bloody spots dotting my clothes. I can't offer an alternative route, I descended to the east of the forestry which involved getting across a fence, again mixed with furze, that would do the Grand National justice. You have been warned. Views from the top pretty spectacular mind you, and did have the mild pleasure of releasing a lamb trapped in a fence and disappointing the crows circling overhead.

MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Leataoibh in area Dingle West, Ireland
Picture: Summit of Lateeve, looking SW
simon3 on Leataoibh, 2010

One place to start is from around Q389 018 A, on a waymarked way which opens onto a rough field leading to the open moorland of the hill. Climb to the ridge, walk along the ridge NE for around 1.6km and you will reach the summit which has a trig pillar.

The picture we took does not do justice to the tremendous 360 degree panorama from the top which encompasses both north and south sides of the Dingle peninsula, Brandon, Eagle Mountain and the smaller hills. The picture looks SW with the dark Lateeve ridge to the left and on the central skyline Eagle Mountain with Coaghmartin to its right.

A great ridge. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/934/comment/4318/
