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.
QuestsEditGnome glider is located at the centre peak of the mountain and is accessible to players after they have completed The Grand Tree quest.
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.
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 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.
There is also a dwarven bar, with Dwarvern stouts on the tables for free, which has the following NPCs:
- Holoy - Runs a Crossbow shop
- Khorvak - A dwarven engineer
- Rohak - After the player saves him from the Culinaromancer in Recipe for Disaster.
- Captain Ninto - A drunk gnome who is a possible customer in the Gnome Restaurant minigame and also is involved in an anagram clue scroll.
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.
