Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe euclid

Special Containment Procedures: No personnel are to enter SCP-XXXX without permission from at least 1 level 3 personnel. All roads leading to SCP-XXXX have been blocked off by a standard electrified chain link fence. No less than 2 guards are to be present at any time. SCP-XXXX-1 is to remain where it was discovered to prevent further injury.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a town located ██ kilometers south of ██████ Arizona. The anomaly was discovered due to a sudden wave of cases of altitude sickness in Arizona. All inhabitants were administered class b amnestics and the town was evacuated. A search of the homes found no cause of the anomaly at first however upon further inspection a radio found belonging to ██████ ████████ was found to increase the slope of the incline to 20% and snowfall to increase to 40 upon activation. This radio was then classified as SCP-XXXX-1.The interior of the device shows various components that display small reality distorting properties.

SCP-XXXX's primary anomalous properties affect subjects within the town which is approximately 5km2. Within this boundary subjects find that when walking to any location within the area of effect there is an average incline of about 13.45%. This incline is observed when facing any direction except when the intent is to leave the town. The town itself appears to be under its own effect as there is a constant snowfall of approximately 12.7cm throughout the year even though only being 1200 meters in elevation.
Extended exposure to the effect of SCP-XXXX may lead to symptoms of altitude sickness (see test log). This has been hypothesized to be caused by the subject reaching 4000m.

SCP-XXXX-1 is a devise of unknown origin. The exterior of SCP-XXXX-1 resembles a standard HAM radio however the interior contains various non standard components. The exact function of each component is still unknown as tampering with the device results in the average slope reaching a 90 degree drop-off (see incident log xxxx-402). Several of the components emit mild hawking radiation through unknown meens.
