Descent (171), April 2003


The Descent Caption Competition

Descent readers have again excelled themselves with their captions - who won the prize this month?


Images from the Past

Indentifying the Giant

An old postcard, a forgotten scene ... Surely not, as proved when cavers answer the query and identify not only the entrance, but who took the picture.


Digging the Pork Sandwich

'I jack up the scaffolding under the blockage and some small bits come down, but not all of it. I release the jack and down it comes like a ton of bricks.' Many cavers will remember 'Buster' Wright's film at Hidden Earth 2002 - but how many appreciated the extent of his solo digging? His diary reveals all.


Gear Review

Memory-Map Navigator

All cavers use maps at some stage, to find a cave or plot where one might lie - or even draw their own. Digital mapping is on the increase, so take a look at what is now available for your computer screens - both at home, and underground.


Twenty Years After

Join Len Cook for caving and photographing in Ireland, yesteryear style


Sierra-Uniform-Mike-Papa

The dreaded sump, deep underground in China. Will the race for a record depth succeed, or will filling the Furong Jiang dam eliminate the potential as the water table rises?


Dealing with Hypothermia

Following the article in Descent (170), here is more advice on coping with hypothermia underground.


To Cheve and Beyond

Every year a flurry of expeditions leave the UK for unknown depths overseas, funded in part by grants which - in some cases - make it all possible. Here are the destinations of 2003, the support they gained and an analysis of where support is heading.


The Infamous Sump 12

Down at the sharp end of Swildon's Hole, efforts are still being made to push towards Wookey. Will the fifty-first diver be successful at last?


First Time Down

Feel the tiredness and euphoria of completing thet first SRT descent.
