Descent (242), February 2015

Cavers Say Yes!

In December a BCA poll was held to determine cavers’ wishes: to campaign for greater legal access to caves, or to retain the status quo. We said yes!

Draughting Heights

British cavers have been visiting the caves of Mulu for decades – surely, by now the area has been worked out. But no, the latest expedition has revealed an entirely new level of passages and thrown exploration dreams wide open.


The Caves of Gunung Api

What is the attraction of Mulu? Clean-washed river passage and ongoing exploration, that's what!

Ashton's Flood Pulses

Most cavers know of the principles used in dye-tracing to determine the nature of unknown cave passages, but here we enter the world of Ken Ashton and his use of flood pulses.

Write it down!

Callout Time

All cavers know that a callout time is needed for every trip – and that you never, ever ought to exceed it.

On the Underside of Surrey

Old, forgotten mines are just as attractive as caves to some of our community, even if their rediscovery takes months and years of toil and trouble to uncover their secrets.

The Inconvenient Truth

The media is legendary for misreporting anything to do with caves, but this time one publication exceeded all expectations.
