Cliffs at Croaghaun on Achill Island (Expand pics)
Isolation & Remoteness-Bear Grylls decides!
Tomorrow night (Tuesday 31st) on Discovery Channel there is an episode of Bear Grylls Man v's Wild in which he has travelled to Ireland. I understand he is thrown into the ocean off the west coast and has to scale "2000 foot cliffs". I wonder where this is-perhaps Croaghaun on Achill, or Slieve League in Donegal? Apparently he also skins a rotting sheep to make a "sheeping bag", and eats its heart. I also read that he fell into a "brush-covered limestone fissure" and had to be rescued by his cameraman. Where does all of this take place? Knowing his propensity for going to remote places it will be interesting to see where he has chosen to make this episode. Putting aside all the usual criticism of his style-staying in hotels, getting all sorts of assistance etc, I still think it will be worth watching. After all, this episode will be viewed across the world and I wonder how Irish Isolation & Remoteness will be represented. He mght even give us food for thought! (but no raw sheeps heart thank you!)
