Descent (264), October 2018

Long Kin West

For fifty years cavers have been digging on northern moors, seeking the lost river of Ingleborough.

The Continuing Mission

A massive cave rescue in Thailand was reported in Descent (263) and we went to print just as the operation concluded. Now we can continue our coverage of this incredible achievement.

Scanning on a Swell

Sea caves are often overlooked as sites to explore in the UK, but there’s some pretty big ones out there simply demanding that they be measured!

So Let Me Get This Straight ...

The quartzite caves in the mountains of eastern Zimbabwe are remote and difficult to arrange access for, without throwing in a requirement for armed guards.

Twin Peaks

Two major caving events were held this summer: the EuroSpeleo Forum in Austria and the NSS Convention in Montana.

Write it down!

The Bear Necessities

Clive Keen describes what caving is like in the Canadian Rockies. That’s cold with bears and all ... but there’s plenty of limestone.

The Descent Competition

Mine to Mountain

Could this be a challenge for you? Descend to the lowest publicly accessible point deep underground in the UK, then climb to the top of a mountain in one day – and you can win two tickets for the trip.
