The "Mecano" in BDW

- We had a “frantic” year, with many activities, and with more variation than the past few years (that had been almost exclusively under the sign of the exploration of “Bois de Waerimont”).  A few new members joined our ranks.  

- Still many trips in Bois de Waerimont in order to finish the exploration of Réseau du Printemps, but also to start some new digs such as the risky "Mecano" (see picture).

- Some interesting discoveries where made in Chawresse, Grotte de Borlon, Trou du Palan, Le Pressoir and Bebronne, sometimes after long and intensive digging Works (e.g. Pressoir).


- In the Anialarra System we established an underground camp near the bottom at -600 m. We discovered over 400m of galeries but unfortunately they didn’t allow us to get passed the terminal boulder choke of the cave system at -648m.

Anialarra in the snow- We had several 4-day stays in the French Doubs ( e.g. we bottomed Montaigu, -360m), but above all we had a magnificent stay in the Var department (Frankrijk) where we bottomed many caves such as Cyclopibus (-370 m) .


- Our first mini-Anialarra Expedition in October suffered from heavy snowfall, but a trip in the splendid Arresteliako Ziloa (>55000 m long, -800m) was a good compensation for the lost days.
