Catacombs

Does anybody seriously know how to get deeper into the French catacombs? If so would anybody be willing to get a team with me and explore.
I understand that it is life or death and 1 mistake can be fatal, but I am still extremely interested in going

One of the stories you can read... 2 guys went in, one got wounded, the other found its way back and police had to search for the wounded one who was found in a 'preoccupying state'.

Mais bon, c'est vous qui voyez.

I don't speak French so I ran the article through a translator. There are a few translation errors but you can get still the point of the article:

"Forbidden game" very well could have ended. On Friday morning, two young men born in 1991 and 1993, who had managed to get into the catacombs, found themselves stuck in the maze of underground galleries.
One of the two cavers amateurs, victim of a fall and severely injured at the hips, couldn't move. Fortunately, groin could return to the surface to alert the rescue but without being able to locate precisely where it had "left" the wounded man.
Research operations, which required the intervention of firefighters specialized in "dangerous areas" but also of police officers 'sports brigade', began shortly before 9 o'clock.
The victim were found that half an hour later. Conscious but unable to walk, she was reduced to the open by firefighters prior to be evacuated to the Hospital of the pity-Salpêtrière (13th), in a State described by firefighters 'of concern '.
According to the first elements of the investigation, two young lovers of strong sensations would be down in the catacombs for technical access "what they knew" at the level of the place of Italy (13th). They would be then lost in the underground network from and that public access is normally the place Denfert-Rochereau (14th

OK, if the danger doesn't scare you then how do you feel about breaking the law? Is it worth the risk of prosecution?

preoccupying state translates better in 'a state of concern'.

You are 100% idiotic. French prisons aren't pretty, though I've heard the food is decent. If you really are serious, join the UX (fluency in French required).

If it is a dream and you have cancer, you probably can find a guide - check with associations like 'Make A Wish'.

If you are just stupid, then find a way alone.

The hidden access areas are well-known and have been blocked off due to heightened security concerns. There's no way to get in, period.

Are you also 100% interested in the welfare of any rescue personnel who might be called upon to save your stupid and selfish arse if you manage to find your way in and it goes all wrong? Maybe you don't care about the consequences to you but there is a world full of people who could also be impacted by your bad choices.

Hum.
I could go in whenever I want Fuzz... but only if you go with me, I'm afraid in the dark ;-)

London has miles of them -they're call Tubes - explore at your heart's desire - no problem finding your way in either.

Why don't you consider caves? France is full of them.
