    120m dive in French cave

    Did anyone see the three french guys in the news that just did a new exploratory 120m dive on Megs and Inspirations here in France near Pau? If you can read French, check out todays local news paper edition of the "La republique"Pyrénée Atalantique edition. Nice photo!

    Thanks for adding the French link. Very cool dive! It gave great publicity in the local papers to CCRs and in the story explained how they worked and why they were used.

    Cheers

    Not the very best english translation, but still good enough to get a grip of the story...

    Translation result for http://www.sudouest.com/pays-basque/actualite/article/672993/mil/4978241.html

    I haven't been able to figure out where this place is located though, maybe some of you locals could help me out...

    Hi , it is a little bit more than 1h30 from Pau.
    Cave is nice, sure , but cold (7°C) and very réactive to rain, snow...etc.

    We planned several push dive, but weather decided something else. We'll be back next winter.

    Cheers,

    Frank.
