Descent (114), October 1993

Derek Lamebrain

A tribute to Derek


Wetsuits create too much friction to be worn in this Grade 5 cave. Rescye problems are much worse than the entrance series of that pleasant place, Daren Cilau. So what’s going on down Ban-y-Gor?

To Fermanagh by Pantechnicon

Len Cook continues his caving, 1950s style, with a Craven PC trip to Ireland and the exploration of Pollaraftara.

A Trip to Lava Land

It’s off to the USA, where ascenders fetch $410 a pair!

Caucasian Caves and a Dormouse

Mix a dormouse in a can with a Russian policeman at a station, and you’ve got problems.

Fluffies at the Fair

The Cavers’ Fair for 1993.

The Nature of the Beast

Ever wondered why you go caving? So has Iain Barker.
