Descent (229), December 2012

With eight extra pages

Ghar Parau Expedition Support

As British cavers once again plan overseas trips in search of caverns measureless, this is where the grants will take them.

The Descent Pixa Competition

Did you win the Petzl Pixa 3R rechargeable light in the Pick up a Pixa competition in Descent (228)? If not, you have another chance.

A Short Dig, An Open Dive

A new cave diving site in an overlooked ‘other’ area – that’s an opportunity for exploration that doesn’t come along too often, and it yielded more than expected.

The Road to The Frozen Deep

The media has been filled with fleeting reports about the discovery of the UK’s largest naturally occurring underground chamber, but we have the full story of the dig and the resulting find.

A New Kind of Fun

Pushing a system high on a New Zealand mountain sounds exciting. The trouble is, Stormy Pot is anything but nice.

From UMIST to Hidden Earth

It’s not only a report on the most recent Hidden Earth conference, it’s also a tale of highs and lows across the years.

Shooting the Cover

Our cover image is an unusual one – this is how it was shot.

The Manhattan Connection

The Ease Gill System has another connection, this time between Hiroshima and Nagasaki – which means Manhattan offers a new through-trip.

Write it down!

Hot Turkey!

Our occasional series of anecdotes continues with one from Turkey – it was clearly time to Write it Down!
