Sunday Times magazine article on caving and Picos
« on: March 01, 2017, 08:43:43 am »
Heads up: I've written a big article for this weekend's Sunday Times magazine about caving and recent explorations around the Vega de Ario in the Picos de Europa by the Ario Caves Project, the loose coalition of interested explorers run by Steph Dwyer and Mike Bottomley. It retains links with OUCC, and includes several OUCC alumni, such as myself. You won't be able to get it online unless you are a subscriber, because it will be behind a paywall, so reserve your copies now!

Well done Dave!
We are visiting Santa in Lapland, but will get someone to hunt down a copy for us.
Looking forward to reading it when we get back.

I couldn't find it, although I was looking through the paper/mag in Waitrose so that section could have gone missing  :(

Apologies from Dave Rose - the article will be in next week's edition  - so UKC have been sharing false news, sorry about that  :(
