Descent (250), June 2016

The Caves of the Kosua

The caves of the Darai Plateau in Papua New Guinea belong to the Kosuan people who, an Irish expedition has found, are some of the friendliest and most helpful you are likely to meet anywhere. And this is an area of the world with everything to play for, cave-wise.

A Case of Desecration

These are sad days indeed, when a cave is found damaged, formations smashed and destroyed ... by cavers (to use the term loosely). And it appears to have been deliberate.

Cyclist, Orienteer, Runner ... Caver

All his life, Bert Bradshaw was a little powerhouse, a man who epitomised the concept of endurance. The caving world is a little poorer without this long-time president of the Northern Pennine Club.

Beyond the Puddle

White Keld in Wharfedale started as a puddle in a corner of a field, but today cave divers have 1.2km of passage to traverse in their search for a route towards Mossdale Caverns and Langcliffe Pot.

Cave Science

Caribbean Art

Cave-based scientific projects are proceeding apace around the world; this one is revealing more of our human history in the Caribbean.

Pal-y-Cwrt Revisited

Far from being a minor, unimportant cave, Pal-y-Cwrt could be the key to unlocking a major system – and after years of receiving attention, at last a new extension has been made.
