A player using a shortcut to cross a river

Shortcuts can be found all around Gielinor. By climbing cliff sides, crossing rivers and squeezing through crevices, it is possible to reach a destination more directly than by the alternative route. Nearly all shortcuts require the proper Agility level. There are no guaranteed rewards for using shortcuts, except that they will save you time, but they will sometimes give small amounts of Agility experience. All shortcuts, with the exception of some of the stiles and the Falador shortcut, are P2P, and some require Ranged and Strength levels. Shortcuts can be identified by the (Shortcut map icon) icon on the minimap.

Some agility shortcuts can be failed, with a loss of hit points, which can be a cause of death.

As of 15 February 2011, it is possible to build Hidey-holes to store a crossbow and a grapple at some grapple shortcuts so you will not need to carry one.
