Like the heading asks, what is the word limit on a cache page write-up...?

I know there's a limit for a log and for the short description, but not sure about for a write-up itself. I've written some lengthy ones, and none have come back needing to be shortened. However, the longer they are, the greater the chance the individual paperless caching units may cut off the end of the description, so put the "meat" of your cache page early in the description.

What I have in mind would be a puzzle....not one which a paperless cacher could solve in the field. But you do make a good point, I'd put right at the top of the page that this is a lengthy page and not meant to be attempted paperless.

Impressive....if that length is still allowed I should have no problem.

Descriptions over 15000 characters will break Delorme 60 GPS units. (Earlier Delorme units break with shorter descriptions).
