An Ascension Island Letterbox walk, well two actually.

In the days when the world was travelled in sailing ships on journeys that took many months to complete sailors would leave letters for home in boxes that would be collected by ships travelling back. Whilst this plateau was called Letterbox it is unlikely that the location of the Letterbox on Whale Point is where the original box was due to the difficult access from sea level.

This would usually be an out and back route but I was collected from the rocky shoreline by a RIB who wanted to see if it was feasible.
You'll need a head for heights to reach the Letterbox.
Letterbox is the the site of a large nesting colony of Masked Booby.
