Descent (181), December 2004

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.

Wookey: Aiming Deep

Divers in Wookey Hole – one of the UK’s greatest challenges – have at last made progress towards the elusive Chamber 26, and produced a new depth record in the process.

SUSS vs. the University of Sheffield

Sheffield University’s caving club is well established and highly regarded, yet has been systematically shut down by the authorities. It’s back to the thorny questions of perceived risk and, with no medals to win, value to the system. This is a wider problem than it might seem – other societies take note.

T’Owd Man in Speedwell

A project is underway to record the many marks left behind by T’Owd Man of the Peak.

A Weekend at the Brewery

The 2004 Hidden Earth conference was held at the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal, as far north as it’s ever been. Here’s the fare that cavers saw.

One Year On

The British Caving Association came into being at midnight on the last day of 2003. With some cavers still confused and concerned over membership fees and insurance, how has the BCA fared in its first year – and what will 2005 bring?

Man versus Microchip

Jim Eyre has written his autobiography using, for the first time, that most thoroughly recalcitrant of devices: a computer. Read Jim’s account of who won, man or machine.

Draenen is Ten!

Yes, Ogof Draenen was discovered ten years ago – doesn’t time fly! A healthy bunch of cavers got together to celebrate the first ten, and look to the next.

China in the UK

The Royal Geographical Society in London kicked off a week’s lectures and field-trips around the UK, set up specially for international visitors as a first of its kind.

The Near Country

Yet again, we learn that caves are where you find ’em with a new extension dug from the side of a major route in Gaping Gill.
