Descent (180), October 2004


What a Corker!

Digging, digging downward, drop follows drop follows drop in Corky’s Pot. Read how those lucky lads with the Bradford PC forged another connection with Gaping Gill.


Marching on Your Stomach

Eat, don’t eat, eat well, eat what ? Here’s Iain Barker’s take on how to survive your caving trip by stomaching your march.


In the Land of Hollow Rock

Rich Gerrish takes us on a return trip to China – where caves abound, along with the thrill of open leads.


The Craven Chronicle

With the Craven PC celebrating an anniversary, Howard Beck covers 75 years of speleo-history.


Images from the Past

Percy Pearson

Ever resourceful and willing to freely supply information, cavers offer their feedback on old photos and reminiscence about Percy Pearson.


Underground in the South-east: Sand Mines

In a continuing series on the underground of South-east England, Peter Burgess visits the region’s sand mines.


Gear Review

Petzl Spelios and DuoBelt

Petzl has two new products: 14 LEDs in a cluster, either mounted on a helmet or powered by a belt-mounted pack.


The Descent Caption Competition

There’s 50m of prime SRT rope on offer, courtesy of Inglesport, if you’ve the wit and humour to win it.


How the Land Lies

Landowners are increasingly worried about the legal implications of cavers being on their land; we pay the cost in sometimes complex access agreements and insurance premiums. But what of trespass, let alone the inherent risk of caving? An unrelated court case has shed some light on what landowners might now expect to happen.
