This cache requires a short hike but a steep climb (for Kansas). Hiking boots are definitely recommended. This cache is not recommended for small children or the faint of heart.
Cache is a standard camo-painted ammo box and is located directly on an inactive fault line near Tuttle Creek Dam.
The Tuttle Creek spillway fault system displaces alternating beds of limestone and mudstone deposited some 280 million years ago in a shallow fluctuating sea that existed here during the early part of the Permian Period. The age of the faulting is uncertain. Markers at the top and bottom of the spillway wall (Which you'll be climbing) identify the principal fault. The mostly east-west fault can be identified for a distance of eleven miles.
