Descent (191), August 2006

Inside the Lost World

When a team of cavers explore a Venezuelan cave, Roraima, they find a cliff face window with a stunning vista. For them, the legend of a Lost World becomes fact.

The Frog Leaps Further

When the Black Sheep Diggers finally forged a dry route into Goyden Pot they knew they had cracked the problem, yet they still had to find a way into the main part of the system. This is how they did it.

The Winch at Gaping Gill

We almost take the two annual meets at Gaping Gill for granted; they’re part of our caving heritage. Ric Halliwell looks at the history of the winch from its humble beginnings to the latest agreements.

Remembering Malcolm

Malcolm Cotter, who died while caving on Mendip, is remembered with affection by his friends.

The Glencurran Burials

Caves, as repositories of the past, can yield so much information about our ancestors. Here are the prelimiinary findings from an archaeological dig at Glencurran Cave in Ireland.

Lascaux’s Fungus

First it was algae, then it was fungus, but reports said it had all been treated and Lascaux’s incredible cave art was safe. Not so, it seems.

How I Wasn’t Stuck, Jammed or Entombed!

Ever since he donned a poly bag to better squeeze into a tight cave – and was rescued as a result – Colin Boothroyd has taken some stick. For the first time, he tells his own story to put the record straight.
