Descent (129), April 1996

The Reluctant Diver

It's back to the 1940s with Len Cook and the days of diving northern sumps.

Dry as a Bone

Ogof Draenen strides inexorably onwards, this time into the bare limestone of Gilwern Hill. Read how Waterfall Series was discovered, and how light was shed on the cave's evolution.

Late for Dinner

Pushing beyond the limit of Slaughter Stream Cave's Pirate Passage, the rewards of exploration don't come easy.

The Wolves

'Ian, mad Ian, finally drawing four back. John, with the engineering inspiration to finally beat its rock jaws with scaffolding hung from above. More months, treating each boulder with the care a father treats the newly born; the deadly new born.' Join Pete Francis for the ongoing push towards South Wales next master cave.

Merry Tom

There's a puzzle in Derbyshire - perhaps it's one you can solve.
