I'd still like to know if it's possible to reach the ruins from above. Most of the other ruins I've visited near there have a viable route from the top.

Re: New forest thinning contract awarded

@SuperstitionGuy

Agreed... I would love to think that all contractors are 'pure-hearted' and are making a bonafide effort, and certainly the government's many layers are universally obtuse. But that 4FRI / Pioneer F.P/Good Earth / NewLife F.P. boondoggle shows that is not always the case.
