Helppo peruskätkö Ruusutorpan maalinnoituksen lähettyvillä. Venäjä rakennutti Helsingin alueelle Viaporin linnoituksen ensimmäisen maailmansodan aikana n. 1915. Linnoitukseen kuului sekä merilinnoitus että maalinnoitus. Ruusutorpan maalinnoitus (tukikohta XXX:3) on osa Espoon hajautettua linnoitusketjua, joka jatkuu etelän Westendistä pohjoisen Mäkkylään. Lisää linnoituskätköiltävää löydät etelästä:
Ruukinrannan vallihaudat (visit link)
Tapiolan vallit (visit link)

Tai pohjoisesta:
Nupukivenkallion linnoitus (visit link)
Laturinkallion linnoitus (visit link)

Tämä kätkö on parhaimmillaan alkukesästä ja loppusyksystä. Kesällä kasvit ja talvella lumi täyttävät linnoituksen. Kesällä kannattaa varoa nokkosia. Linnoitteen sisälle ei ole pakko mennä kätkön löytämistä varten eikä kiipeämistä vaadita. Kätkö sijaitsee alueella, josta usein jästejä tavataan ja sopivaa noutohetkeä voi joutua odottamaan hetken.
