Gouffre de l'Astreinte (-370m) France - New discovery
« on: April 26, 2018, 08:31:11 am »
In december 2016 the grotto "Groupe Spéléo de la Vallée d' Ossau" discovered a new cave, current depth is -370m. But the cave is still in exploration.

In the meanwhile a clip was made to show it to the world. But the clip was made by an other Grotto (Amalagame) during a visit.

I picked this news up on French FB group.

Hi Leclused, thanks for this, does Grotto mean club?

I used grotto as english term for a caving club. In France they use mostly "Groupe (de) Speleo"

I think "Grotto" is more of an American term, the English tend to use "Caving Club" much like the French.

Britain / America. Two countries separated by a common language.
