Descent (201), April 2008

So Near Yet So Fawr

It’s been hard work, but a major depression in South Wales is finally yielding results.

Gear Review

Scurion Headlamp

Caver-designed and caver-built, how does the Scurion handle the dark?

Gentleman of the South

Mike Thompson’s name was not as prominent as that of some cavers, yet his caving life was inextricably linked with a broad sweep of UK exploration.

The Parallel Universe

Gear Review

Warmbac Daren Bag

A new tackle bag has been designed specifically to stand up to the rigours of Daren Cilau.

The Expeditions of 2008

Caving’s Hour of Exercise
