White Wolf Mountain

White Wolf Mountain is a natural region between Taverley and Catherby, and as a border between the kingdoms of Asgarnia and Kandarin. The mountain itself is very dangerous to low-level players, however there are a variety of ways to go around or dodge the surface. Once a player has completed the Fishing Contest Quest, a tunnel that travels underneath the mountain becomes accessible. This tunnel features a cart station that leads to Keldagrim. There is also a boat from Port Sarim to Catherby, and Catherby has a lodestone so the Mountain only needs to be 'crossed' once.


Throughout the White Wolf Mountain, level 8, 16 and level 30 White Wolves roam about, aggressively attacking low-level players. A single level 43 Big Wolf also lurks about, proving deadly to some lower levelled players. These Wolves are a convenient source of Wolf bones used in various quests. Some players may set up a cannon at the peak of the mountain as it will hit many wolves on the mountain and very few can actually attack the players back. In the Ice Queen's lair underneath this mountain you will also find level 78 Ice warriors, level 74 Ice giants, and level 60 ice spiders. At the end of the cave network is the Ice Queen.


The entrance to a series of dungeons are guarded by high-level Ice Warriors and Ice Giants. In this so-called Ice Queen's lair, the Ice Queen can be found, who plays a crucial role in Heroes Quest.

The dwarven brothers Austri and Vestri have a tunnel underneath this mountain and grant access to it after the Fishing Contest quest.

A Gnome glider is located at the centre peak of the mountain and is accessible to players after they have completed The Grand Tree quest.

It is also the location of Grimgnash, a griffin who plays a central role in the quest Grim Tales.

The White Pearl is also found here, for the quest Mountain Daughter. Players need gloves to pick it from the Thorny bushes, or 40 damage would be dealt.

The dead druid from the quest Wolf Whistle is found at the mountain's eastern entrance.

The mountain is also featured in Heart of Stone where the place is related to the elder god Wen.

Ways of getting aroundEdit


The first way of getting to the other side of white wolf mountain is to walk a certain path. From Taverley you start just North of the bank. From Catherby you start East of the fishing area. If you start from Catherby once on the mountain go Northwest and follow the paths until you come to an open area. From there go East but do not go Northeast or you will be by a rockslide. If you go East you should walk through some guards. Once you pass the guards walk on the first path South until you end up in Taverley. If you come from Taverley follow this same route but do the opposite except when you get to the opening go on the Notheast path then go South to Catherby.

The simplest and safest (if slightly expensive alternative) is to go to the eastern area of Port Sarim where there's a collection of ships. One ship will run a trading company and will offer to 'charter' you to a port of your choice. Taking the trip to Catherby will get you directly on the West or member side of White Wolf Mountain and will cost around 1,000 coins - however there is a lodestone in the area, so you only need to pay once before activating the lodestone and having a direct crossing from anywhere in Runescape.

The boat network can also take you to a variety of other places, such as Port Khazard near Ardougne.


Agility shortcutEdit

There is a mithril grapple Agility shortcut located at the entrance of the mountain (when coming from Catherby) that requires 35 Strength, 35 Ranged, 32 Agility, and the completion of the Fishing Contest quest. This shortcut, however, can only be used when travelling from Catherby to Taverley.

The White Wolf Mountain Pass

The Fishing Contest quest also unlocks a two-way underground passage that has no skill requirements that is little different in length to the above-ground route but does not have wolves and is safe for low level players.

Each end is guarded by a dwarf. Austri on the east and Vestri on the west. Other dwarves occupy the tunnel itself.

There is a Mine cart tunnel to Keldagrim next to the bar (south of the east stairway).

There is also a dwarven bar, with Dwarvern stouts on the tables for free, which has the following NPCs:


To lower level players who are not yet capable of teleportation or fending off the creatures of White Wolf Mountain, the passing may seem impossible. However Magic tablets can be used by anyone to teleport to different locations past the mountain, such as Camelot and it is possible to use a charter ship to reach any of the cities on the other side. You can also teleport using the lodestone network after activating the Taverley or Camelot lodestones.
