Descent (185), August 2005


At Altitude with a Yellow Peril

Caving at altitude is perilous indeed – without taking along a video camera for your attack on the highest cave in the world.


The Dolphin of Dolphin Pot

Paul Dolphin, whose name is inextricably linked with Eastwater Cavern and Pwll Dwfn, died in May; his life is remembered with this previously unpublished interview.


A Little Light Relief

‘The turning-round space was now a little smaller and I appeared to be trapped.’ It was just one more incident during exploration in the latest, incredible Notts Pot II discoveries.


Guardians of the Underworld

Cave life often takes a back seat in speleo studies, especially the ‘commoner’ forms such as spiders. There’s research to be done – and an appeal for help.


A Tale of Three Chokes

Access to Shannon Cave in Ireland was lost in the 1990s when a choke finally gave up its struggle against gravity. Now, a nasty little dig in a nearby cave has yielded a new route in.


Mixed Weather, Butcombe and Goon!

Mendip was the place to be in July for the British Cave Rescue Council’s conference.


The Descent Caption Competition

Welcome back to the Descent Caption Competition, with two lights to be won as a reward for making us laugh.
