Descent (174), October 2003


Nobody Said it Would be Easy!

The story of Titan’s discovery in the Peak District is filled with detective work and sheer dogged determination. With news of the breakthrough from the surface dig, British cavers can look forward to what has been described as the finest pitch in the country – and a through-trip, to boot.


The Three-pronged Attack

‘This is a tale of a long-awaited victory, of the overwhelming defeat of the most formidable adversary met by the Trident explorers.’ Yes, the connection’s been made between Trident and Swindon Hole.


Gear Review

Glo-Toob

Remember the Cyalume lightstick? It’s time for some modern technology based on LEDs.


Under the Hunters’

Tony Jarratt’s pub car park dig goes from strength to strength, finding yet more extensions taking explorers ever deeper. With ancient bones and a sump to push, could this be heading for a new master cave?


Time and Tide Wait for ... Cave Rescue

In July the media went into a frenzy when it covered a cave rescue from Otter Hole. As it turned out, this proved to be one of the slickest rescues imaginable and a credit to everyone involved.


Climbing Trees

Some say that caving is a means to an end. In this case the ending owed less to a cave discovery than it did to the human element.


The Descent Caption Competition

This is no time to delay – there’s a fine Caving Supplies tackle sack and a rope to be won in this latest competition.


Gaping Gill

The splendour of Gaping Gill, in verse.


The Balkan Question

Alan Jeffreys presents another of his irreverent looks at the caving community – and suggests how to sort out some of the world’s ills!
