Descent (209), August 2009

Gear Review

Beast D-ring

It’s a neat bit of kit, it seems; how could you live without ... a D-ring?

Of Tigers and Old-Timers

The latest expedition to return from the giant caves of Mulu was a stunning success, combining exploration with cutting-edge science and drawing on the talents of not only newcomer cavers, but those of greater years and experience.

A Life in Caves

We say a final farewell to Claude Chabert.

The Siren Song

Artur Kozlowski continues his account of diving exploration in the Green Holes of Doolin on the Atlantic coast, where unentered passages weave their spell.

A Wharfedale Weekend (Part 5)

With a new Hidden Earth weekend on the horizon, we conclude our major coverage of the 2008 event.

Working with St Patrick

Yet more passages have been found and the survey is now far advanced, so the team thought it was time for an update on work in Shannon Cave.

Resurrecting Fernhill

What was lost was not forgotten – these are cavers, after all! They knew full well that the void of Fernhill Cave still lay beneath the quarry spoil. It seemed that the time to excavate had come, to reveal once more the cave’s rich decorations.

The Bottom Line

Life As We Know It

Yes, it’s the return of Alan Jeffreys with another of his occasional, captivating musings, this time concerning what might become of his blood!
