Descent (179), August 2004
A Youngster in Borneo
The Gunung Mulu National Park has justifiably attained fame for its soaring caverns and endless passages, waiting for the first footfall to arrive. James Alker is one such explorer, delving deep into the hollow mountain of Gunung Benarat.
From Tee ... To Triachwech
Toby Stewart was a prominent figure in the South Wales speleo scene. Here, his closest friends tell the story of Toby’s caving career.
Nasty and Nice
Out for a walk, notice a hole, investigate and push. The result: a new cave for the Peak, both nasty and nice.
High in the Sky Photography
For decades cavers have pored over aerial photographs in the hope of finding clues to new areas ripe for exploration. With pictures of the whole of England now published on DVD, how good is the product for caver use?
Varied Fare for Devon Cavers
Devon’s field meet drew cavers to Buckfastleigh for a day’s caving and talks.
Enchanted with Black Keld
Brian Judd always has a tale to tell, especially when he’s been diving at the sharp end of Black Keld.
Men in Black
Men in Black – not a reference to Black Keld, but black tights. Who won the latest Descent competition?
Softrock Mining in South-east England
The south-east of England is not the first place you might think of for cave and mine exploration, but Peter Burgess assures us that there is plenty to attract enthusiasts.
Images from the Past
Group Photos on Mendip
Photographs filled with faces are all too easily put aside rather than labelled when taken; so, fifty years later, who were the cavers? We appeal for your help.
Nice Weather for Ducks
Perseverance: the quality that a caver needs to dig in a squalid sump off Passchendaele in Notts II. But success awaits ...
Grand Day Out
In June a caver asked a favour: a trip down Gaping Gill. Sat in his wheelchair, the experience was not what he expected.
