Descent (122), February 1995

Twenty Thousand Metres Under Pwll Du

Exploration proceeds apace in Ogof Draenen, which passed the 20km mark in the New Year. Here's the details of how the round-trip in Britain's fastest growing cave was discovered.

Sleets Gill: The Movie

In 1992 Les Hewitt and Roy Dean were rescued in a spectacular fashion from Sleets Gill Cave. Subsequently, a film documentary was made. Should it have been titled Get trapped with Les? What was it like to return to the scene of this almost fatal incident?

Prusiking on a Core

The 1994 Chimanimani expedition to Zimbabwe was a resounding success, and attained a depth record for southern Africa. Yet, not everything went right. When a rope sheath parted company, there was no alternative to prusiking on the core.
