Descent (235), December 2013

With eight extra pages

Bottoming the Berger

Dave Gill was initiated into expedition caving in the Gouffre Berger by none other than the legendary Black Pearce. His reminiscences of those days in the 1960s and the accompanying images from the trip form a counterpoint to more modern techniques and photography, as we tackle the Berger on ladders.

The Final Curtain

They say that caves are where you find ’em, and nowhere more so than this discovery near the entrance to a much-frequented cave.

Of All Things Caving

The annual celebration of all things caving has taken place, this year in Monmouth. We report on the highs and (given the subject matter) lows of the 2013 Hidden Earth conference.

Caves and CRoW

The CRoW Act 2000 conferred rights of access to designated land, but not for all activities. It seemed time for an analysis of cave entrances, with some interesting statistics emerging for northern England.

A Mendip Caver with a Camera

Nick Barrington was perhaps best known for writing the first series of guidebooks covering Mendip caves. Here, we pay tribute to his work and photography of old.

Gear Review

Bamboo Base Layer
