Descent (225), April 2012
The Final Piece of the Jigsaw
Tim Allen opened our major coverage of the Three Counties System final link in Descent (224) and now concludes the story of how the team attained that major achievement.
Going Head to Head on Leck Fell
As if concluding the Three Counties link-up was not enough, the team headed directly for Death’s Head Hole to work on another connection dig.
The Three Counties Media Circus
As cavers, we all know how the media portrays our sport, often with an inelegant description of what it involves and complete with utter inaccuracies. With the Three Counties link, however, the press outdid even its own poor record.
No day is a good day to break a leg, let alone require a rescue callout – but then again, it’s perhaps made more embarrassing when you have to pull rescuers from their Christmas dinners ...
Nicola Makes the Grade
Cave rescue is going to see some changes, with a central European organisation in the offing and a new version of the Nicola radio passing its field trials and heading for production.
British Cavers Overseas
The expedition season is upon us – who is heading where in 2012?
Doming 3W Headlight
An updated Doming headlight now sports a powerful 3W LED – and at the price it sells for, it’s going to interest cavers!
Diving the Fou de Bor
The terminal sump of Fou de Bor begins at a static pool in a frequently visited Spanish mountain cave. It seemed time to take a good look, with the bonus of meeting the local caving godfather.
