Descent (173), August 2003


The Search for Dreams

Expeditions are not all the same. This one, a small, lightweight recce to Uzbekistan, revealed not only the beauty of an open, ongoing system, but the reality of a delicate dream.


Forty Years On

The Federation Francais de Speleologie was formed in 1963 - which makes its fortieth anniversary an ideal excuse for a major party!


Ever the Eternal Optimist

After a ten-year search, with false leads and disappointments interspersed with the euphoria of success, the dry link has finally been forged between Goyden Pot and Manchester Hole.


Solo!

Lured by the need to cave, what if something went wrong and there is nobody but you to decide the next course of action? Do you stay, do you attempt to leave, do you head further in to a camp? How would you analyse your situation?


A Genius Inventor

We say farewell to the man who influenced equipment design for decades, Fernand Petzl.


The Descent Caption Competition

There is no time to delay - there's a fine Caving Supplies tackle sack and a rope to win, in this latest competition.


Underground Overground

The Mendip Caving event in June was a resounding success - with premiered films and novel antics on Priddy Green. Fancy a round-trip in the 'new' Swildon's Hole?


Images from the Past

Who Were These Potholers?

Another photograph from times long gone requires some legwork to indentify the cavers, and their unusual ladder.


A Gaping Gardener

It's not every day that you find a gardener down a cave. Certainly not Alan Titchmarsh, even given the Shade Tolerant Garden planted in Gaping Gill.
