Descent (267), April 2019

High in Shannon

Shannon Cave in Ireland has seen over a kilometre of passage added to its length since 2017, so it is time to catch up with the latest finds.

The Buda Success

Dave Gill has worked for seventeen years to protect the limestones of Gunung Buda in Malaysia, and can now finally announce success: a new national park is in the offing.

Down the Tube

The Atlantida Tunnel in the Canary Islands is an incredibly long, flooded lava tube extending beneath the ocean. Access permission is rare, but Martyn Farr was able to take part in a photographic survey.

Gear Review

Ptarmigan Boots

Cave Rescue '17

The rescue statistics for 2017 are here, complete with comparison tables covering the past decade of incidents..

Rigging Quaking

A descent of Quaking Pot is not undertaken lightly, but this useful description of the challenges involved should help, following the installation of new anchors.
