Hype:

Nutty Putty Cave is probably the most popular Boy Scout cave in Utah. There are two portions of the cave: the big slide, and the maze. You can do either part or both if you have enough time (plan 4-5 hours to do the whole thing). If you're doing the maze, take a map or you might end up back at the beginning prematurely. The big slide usually has a rope for a hand guide. There is a 15-ft drop at the end of the slide where there may or may not be a ladder. Last I heard the ladder was broken. Continuing past the drop off leads to the birth canal and to the famous aortal crawl - a grueling 115-ft long body-tight crawl.
