Team Petzl’s Video of Recent Gouffre Berger ExpeditionA new video uploaded earlier this week by Petzl takes viewers along on Team Petzl’s recent trip to France’s Gouffre Berger.

The trip, which took place this past August, was made to commemorate 50 years since cavers, including Fernand Petzl, first reached the record-breaking 1,000 meters (3,280 feet) depth at the cave.

Interspersed with scenes from the 1962 film “Siphon-1122”, which does a good job of portraying what it would have been like for the cavers during their record-breaking expedition some seven years earlier in 1955.
