Caves of Kras
Descent (223) reported on the First International Meeting of Cave Photographers in France, the illustrated coverage drawing much praise. The second meeting moved to just outside Trieste on the Italian–Slovene border, producing a new crop of images from some of the world’s top creative cave photographers.

A sophisticated digging system has been in use in Rowter Hole, where scaffolded shafts are yielding some significant advances.

Sistema Huautla in Mexico calls cavers again and again to seek greater depths. The problem is, that means cave diving on the very forefront of exploration – but it was worth it, as the team gained a new record.
