Gear Review


Raumer Handy Braking Karabiner

A replacement for the traditional steel karabiner used for extra control in SRT, the Raumer Handy, is on test.


A Glimpse of the Starless River

To celebrate the publication of the second part of his autobiography, for your amusement and edification Jim Eyre has set down his story of a pirate trip in France, written in his own inimitable style.


The Rescues of 2006

The British Cave Rescue Council has released details of the rescues that took place in 2006 – read what went right and what went wrong and learn from the mistakes that others made.


A Tribute to the Wig

Dave Irwin, a highly respected caver and speleohistorian, died in March. Some of those who best knew him offer their reminiscences in this tribute.


A Return to Parau

In the 1970s two British caving expeditions pushed the Iranian cave of Ghar Parau to what was hoped would be a new world record, without success. Simon Brooks has made a return and reports on the history of exploration, his part in the latest expedition from Russia and other ongoing projects in the country.

When a 'red rash' of spits began to appear across the UK in the 1980s, a national scheme was set up to place solid, permanent anchors on behalf of all cavers. The problem is, for the first time an anchor has failed its test – and when further checks were made on Mendip, several more followed suit. Here is the latest news.
