Yes, it’s about that time of year, the time to get in on the “end of the year” lists. At The Extremo Files, I’ll be profiling the year’s best in exploration, with assistance from some of the most knowledgeable chroniclers around. Today’s edition: The Best in Caving.
We've teamed up with Caving News, the web’s go-to site for all things speleo: scientific discoveries, conservation issues, and updates of daring adventures around the world. Scott Falkingham, the caver who runs the site, selected five caving expeditions that pushed the boundaries in 2012 and exposed new subterranean frontiers. He explains his picks in this gallery.
