Descent (198), October 2007

Of Hammocks and Holes

An Oxford University CC expedition has returned to the Picos de Europa in northern Spain to push Pozu Chicago from the point where exploration ceased in 2006: an ongoing, open shaft.

Blissful Days

Cave photographer Ron Bliss produced some of the UK’s classic cave photos during the 1950s and later decades and, even given their age, many of them would be familiar to modern cavers. Here, a tribute is paid to the quality of Ron’s early lantern slides.

Pump Up the Volume

If water was the agency that formed our caves, why shouldn’t it be used to empty them out again – it would be sooooo much easier than digging by hand!

Caving Fatalities in the UK

Following an enquiry concerning a possible caving fatality in the 1930s, it proved surprisingly difficult to pull together data for all known incidents, including those that pre-dated the formation of the cave rescue teams. Here is the result of the research.

Hungarian Rhapsody

When cavers from the UK attended the 11th International Cave Rescue Conference in Hungary, they found time to do far more than attend lectures. In the company of fellow delegates, language was no barrier to exploring the vast karst plateaux of Aggtelek National Park and the caves they contain.

Gear Review

StenLight S7 and KSE Lamp

Two caving-suitable, lightweight headlamps are fresh on the UK market, and both perform extremely well.

Fountains of the Great Deep

Alan Jeffreys, in his inimitable style, believes that every caver should experience a full-blown flood – from the inside of a cave.
