Descent (205), December 2008

Everything to Excess

Caving has lost one of the most popular characters to have ever lived on Mendip. His friends pay tribute to digger and explorer Tony ‘J-Rat’ Jarratt.

Proving Martel’s Postulate

The search for a link between Bagshawe Cavern and its resurgence has taken many years, but at last the underwater connection has been made – and a new dig leads onwards into the flow.

Onwards Through The Bellybulger

Since its discovery in February, Cripple Creek, a dry link bettween Ireby I and II, has seen cavers push and push onwards again and again. Even after being trapped by floodwater, they are far from finished with the system.

A Wharfedale Weekend

One of the best attended Hidden Earth conferences in recent years was held in September. Here is the first part of our coverage of this popular event.

A Speleologist and Man of Iron

Jack Myers is perhaps best known for his co-authorship of the classic 1952 Underground Adventure, yet here was a man who knew how to fight adversity and accomplish so much more.

Assessing the Radon Risk

If cavers encounter a high concentration of radon underground, they are unlikely to even know it as the gas is invisible and carries no smell. The latest research from the Peak District is accompanied by advice on how to assess the health risk for yourself.

On Floods and Flooding

When it comes to rainfall and high water, we all know what we should do to avoid becoming another rescue statistic. So why are so many cavers getting it wrong?
