Descent (184), June 2005


Probing Where the Sun Don’t Shine

Year on year, Daren Cilau has seen extensions short and long, blind-ended and excitingly ongoing. However, it is not often that a chamber is entered that contains formations as beautiful as those in Where the Sun Don’t Shine.


A Tribute to Colin

Colin Pryer tragically died in Low Birkwith Cave while cave diving in March. His friends write of their memories, their tributes.


The Rescues of 2004

Here are the British Cave Rescue Council’s statistics for Britain and Ireland’s 2004 callouts, plus a comparison with those from France. Read and learn what not to do!


In the Chamber of the Gods

Owl Hole in the Peak District was once described as a pit filled with rubbish and lost to cavers. Cleaned up, bit by bit it has yielded to a series of digs.


Boireau’s Memorial

A number of memorials were erected to commemorate those who died in Mossdale Caverns in 1967, but it seems that one plaque to Geoffrey Boireau remained unknown to cavers.


Descent into the Peculiar

The Channel Islands might not be your first thought for where to go for an interesting underground experience, but there’s plenty to keep visitors happy in a wealth of tunnels left behind after the German occupation.


Stealing the Jewel of the Underground

Filming for a new BBC television series, British cavers have seen some of the best underground scenery in the world in New Mexico’s Lechuguilla Cave.
