Aven Orgnac
« on: July 21, 2016, 05:42:02 pm »
Did anybody see Ray Mear's visit to the Aven Orgnac in Wild France on the TV  the other day?

It was such a contrast with his 'rival' outdoor star, Bear Grills, a straightforward account of a descent into the cave (via the original entrance shaft), with no bullshit and no histrionics about 'how dangerous this is'. He even had the grace (humility?) to use a lifeline for his abseil.

Yes, I saw it. Excellent program. I especially liked the bit where he decided he was too hot and jumped fully-clothed into the river!
