Descent (194), February 2007


The Grand Tour

In 1989 an article in Descent described a figure-of-nine trip through Swildon's Hole on Mendip. Now, another classic route has been forged in this ever-popular cave: the Grand Tour, taking in all the parts that have made it justly famous, from the squalor of Priddy Green Sink and Cowsh Aven to the ripples of the streamway.


CHECC Goes to Mendip

In November 2006, university cavers from throughout the land descended on Mendip for their annual gathering, encouraging more to take up and retain an interest in the sport.


Marilyn's Deep, Dark Secret

Just as Marilyn Monroe once proved a temptation for some, members of Craven PC could not stay away from the windswept moors of Ingleborough and a lengthy project following a drainage route heading ever deeper into the mountain: Marilyn, a dig leading to Disappointment.


Suspended on a Thread

There can never be a 'normal' experience pushing caves – but the team in Miao Keng can hardly have expected to meet a pitch that kept on going, and going, and going ... Join Rich Gerrish for the ride of his life, dropping a half-kilometre pitch.


Queen of the Moorlands (Part 2)

Here is the concluding part of Descent's coverage of the annual Hidden Earth conference.
