Descent (222), October 2011

The Elusive Nymph

A new species of pseudoscorpion has drawn Robbie Shone to the caves of Portugal, where it became the centrepiece of a photographic essay.

To the Tesla Coil

The National Speleological Society's annual convention in the USA offers cavers a week-long opportunity to meet folk, go caving and generally have a great time.

Typecasting the Vertical Caver

The Frog system of SRT is in widespread use across Europe, but it may not be as efficient as you think – when it comes to energy expenditure, much depends on your body type.

Short but Sweet

When it comes to expedition destinations, Ethiopia is not the most popular, but a British team has found that this region of Africa nevertheless holds promise.

Gear review:

EDZ All Climate Suit

A new undergarment, designed to help to regulate body temperature, has been given a workout, underground.

Talking International Rescue ...

Cave rescue teams across Europe sometimes have very differing approaches to their work, partly due to how the organisations are set up and controlled. We can all learn from one another, hence heading for an international cave rescue meeting in Bulgaria.

Not Flying Mice!

Our British bats are, it seems, still misunderstood even though we as cavers are very likely to come across them close up. It was time for a caver-led, bat awareness course.
