Descent (164), February 2002

Through The Eye

Llygad Llwchwr in South Wales was explored and surveyed in the 1840s – yet, despite advances in equipment and techniques, with years of searching for the way on, no significant passage has been found since then. That is, until now ...

Images from the Past

There are answers to questions past and questions for the future; this is the page where cavers help their fellow cavers with information.

Tales of Mulu

Oft enough, we’ve heard stories of derring-do and caverns measureless from the hollow mountains of Mulu. When a British team returned from Gunung Benarat, they brought with them tales of what an expedition is really like.

The Jug Holes Restoration

There have been some changes at Jug Holes, that most popular Derbyshire novice’s cave. Courtesy of a multi-club effort, it now sports a new and safer entrance.

The Descent Caption Competition

Let this be your reminder that there are four prizes to give away this month – with only a short time left to enter the competition.

Game On!

Tiring of pushing Trapdoor Pot on Dowlass Moss, attention was turned to the nearby and wonderfully named Boggarts Roaring Holes. The old passages choked and defeat seemed near ... then success, with a going pitch. Then another ... and yet another. Game on!

An Underground Adventure

Arthur Gemmell will perhaps be best remembered for his joint authorship of Underground Adventure,
a classic tale of caving in the Dales. Here is caving’s tribute to Arthur, who died in 2001.

Speleology in the Third Millennium

The 13th International Congress of Speleology was held in Brazil. Was it a quiet affair, was it worth making the effort to attend?

Childish Things

Do you remember your first caving story book? Did the imagination of a children’s author spark you into following your dreams underground? Alan Jeffreys muses on such influences with a passion for childish literature.
