Caving’s Hour of Exercise (Part 2)
Here is the continuing report on the National Caving Conference, Hidden Earth, that began in Descent (199).
Hunting the Heights of Miao Keng
Unable to help himself, despite all he suffered in 2006, Rich Gerrish is back in China – determined to climb upwards above a half-kilometre-deep shaft.
Farewell to Jim
Another of caving’s characters has left us: we say farewell to caver, climber, author and reporter Jim Lovelock.
Up the Creek in Inlet 14
Given all our modern equipment, exploration – when it comes down to it – still depends on the right never-give-in attitude. Even if it almost kills you.
Descent’s Competition 200
Your challenge was to write something personal about your caving career: we can now announce the winner and you can read and enjoy the winning entry.
Safeguarding Our Future
Our speleo heritage is being gathered back together from far-flung corners of the country. David Judson writes of the plans being laid to set up a national caving library and heritage centre.
South Wales and the 1960s: an area rich in exploration fever, in particular making the connections between the different parts of Ogof Ffynnon Ddu. How Top Entrance was discovered might surprise you.
The Descent Retrospective
You Mean You Actually Used That?
To help celebrate our 200th edition, Descent asked several cavers to write about changes that have taken place since it began in 1969. The first, by Alan Jeffreys, takes a close look at our equipment: this is how it used to be!
