Descent (166), June 2002


The Rescues of 2001

It was a quiet year for the British cave rescue teams, but there’s still plenty to learn by reading what went wrong.


Aven Climbing in Carno

They thought it would be an easy, fast climb. Only one bolt, they thought. How wrong can you be – and not only wrong, but trapped by floodwater to boot!


So How Did You Start Caving?

Alan Jeffreys returns with another in his occasional series, The Bottom Line.


The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

As cavers, we do our best to protect our underground heritage from the ravages of pollution and overuse, but what of showcaves? Are they education resources that help the public to understand the beauty of caves, or a blight on the environment?


The Descent Caption Competition

A new competition kicks off this month, with a stack of Otter Boxes as a prize.


It’s Sedimentary, My Dear Warren

With ‘polluted’ water entering a farmer’s storage tank, it’s a chance for caving technology and techniques to clean up on Birks Fell.


Being the Very Best of Friends

On 5 April the caving world lost Dave Yeandle in a paragliding accident. Fellow cave diver Geoff Yeadon tells some of the many tales gleaned from the life of the man they call Pooh.
