Descent (186), October 2005


Caving in the Land of the Gods

In August the 14th International Congress of Speleology was held in Greece. In addition to lectures and events, there was plenty of caving going on.


Seeking the World’s Deepest Through-trip

Once the world’s deepest cave, Austria’s Lamprechtsofen now offers the world’s deepest through-trip. Fay Hartley wants to undertake it – and shows the true meaning of perseverance.


Expeditions in a Teacup

Expeditions over the years have led to many strange occurrences – take a look at this latest book, of which we have two to give away.


The Sea Caves of Staffa

The caves of Staffa, including Fingal’s Cave, have never received a proper examination by cavers – until now.


Farewell the Mighty

We have recently lost two of our stalwart cavers – Wilf Taylor of Lancaster Hole fame and that character of Peak District caving, ‘Ben’ Bentham.


Gear Review

Toughprint

Waterproof ‘paper’, tough enough to withstand a cave.


The Descent

No, not your favourite magazine – it’s The Descent, the movie, and readers’ thoughts of this horror-fare.


Saving the Sublime Karst

With cavers having explored Papua New Guinea for more than thirty years, Dave Gill feels it is time to put something back in and help to protect its threatened karst.


Nullarbor Dreaming

In the first of a two-part article, Martyn Farr heads for remote, unforgiving Australian karst, cave dives and kangaroos.


Images from the Past

The Morgan Signature

Here in the showcave, oft ignored, lies the signature of early Dan yr Ogof pioneer Jeffrey Morgan.
