Couple of old ruins can be found near the cliff. There's a door at the far end that leads to the Old facility entrance.
Leon was surrounded by armed Ganados militia, before being rescued by Mike. Unfortunately for Mike, his chopper was shot down by a Militia using a RPG causing him to fall towards the cliff. Player will assume Leon after this happens, and an emerald stone can be found in this area.
In separate ways, Ada will encounter Ganados militia that shot down Mike before heading towards the facility. She can see the remains of Mike's burning chopper but doesn't know exactly what happened.
