Thanx paul

And the best news is that at the end of this month a mini expidtion will go over there for one week to try to push it further to the river. We can already here ther river  but a narrow passege has to be enlarged first.

Hopefully we can pass it and walk to the AN8  :D

Aniallara Exploration Update
« Reply #13 on: November 23, 2006, 01:45:42 pm »
In november a third expedition took place.

Report : http://www.scavalon.be/avalonuk/psm/anial2006Nov.htm

The balance since the breaktrhough is now 5km of new galleries and they stopped on "nothing"

At the mean time the exploration team of the AN8 (Rodez club) has also found a new cave (an26) in between the AN8 and the Aniallara system. There is still approx. 120 - 150m between the AN26 and Aniallara. It's is very possible that terranaf gallery can be linked with this new cave.

So 2007 will be a very exiting year on the PSM.
