Picking your way over the rocky slope the walls are at first comfortingly close. But as you labour away at the unending slope you are suddenly overcome by apprehension, an unnerving sense of immensity beyond your knowledge, a frightening scale of darkness.

Dave Checkley was one of the original discoverers back in 1980. He recalls a memorable day:
When we got up my feet were agony. I walked back in sandals – I would have crawled if it had been nearer. It wasn’t until we drew up the survey the following day that we realized that we had found by far the biggest chamber in the world—we just had to call it Sarawak Chamber. It was a fitting end to a wonderful expedition.
