Bozkovske dolomitove jeskyne

I had an opportunity for a brief visit to the Bozkovské Dolomitové Jeskynĕ or the Bozkov Dolomite caves. The cave system is 1060 meters long and hosts the largest underground lake in Czech Republic.

This was just a show cave tour, so unfortunately no crawling in mud like in Gotland!

More information about this cave can be found from the wikipedia page. A good list of show caves in Czech Republic can be found from the expat page.

Interesting forms and colours:

Marc-André‘s Vision - A New Line on Torre Egger

Marc-André Leclerc’s death in 2018 sent shockwaves through the climbing and greater action sports community. He was a visionary and an iconoclast who climbed solely for the love of the sport and his impact on climbing will be felt for many years to come. Prior to his passing, Marc-André had spotted an unclimbed route on the east face of the legendary Torre-Egger peak in the Southern Patagonian Icefield as he rapelled from a nearby route called Titanic.

​VIDEO: Arnaud Jeraud Completes 120m World Record Freedive

French freediver Arnaud Jeraud just broke his own world record for deepest freedive at 120 meters at the prestigious Vertical Blue competition in the Bahamas. His 3 minute 34 second dive was done using bi-fins, a discipline he has specialized in. While the breath hold period might not actually be that long, it’s the crushing pressure of the 120-meter depth that really does it.
