Descent (243), April 2015

How Big is Big?

How big is that chamber we found? Cavers always want to know such things, but the answer isn’t that easy to come by. Do you work with area or volume, and just which is the largest chamber in the world, anyway?

A Challenge for All Cavers

The Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association helps cavers and others in times of need. Now, they need your support.

Explorer of the Sunless Sea

We say farewell to one of the world’s legendary cavers: Mike Boon.

Before Xanadu

We have some exciting news that ties together a classic poem with the final resting place of a Mongol leader: Genghis Khan.

Tales of the Unexplained

An expedition to the caves of Mulu in 2014 found some strange speleothems, so now the discoverers want to learn more of how they were formed.

The Pit and the Storm

Even after being travelled by cavers for years, there are still secrets to find, new routes to discover in our more popular caves.

Write it down!

Inspired by Fell

A.E. Morgan remembers some of the good days, now long gone, that he spent with friends such as Jack Fell.

A Recce to Rift Pot

When two cavers checked the anchors in Rift Pot, they didn’t expect the trip to end with a serious self-rescue. Here's how the day went.
