The Agility Pyramid is a dangerous Agility training area located between Sophanem and Nardah. It is also known as Jaleustrophos Pyramid. Here, players have to climb up to the top of the pyramid, retrieve a Pyramid top artefact, and slide down to the bottom to hand it to Simon Templeton. After getting to the Agility Pyramid, players should talk to Simon Templeton to learn what they need to do. The Surefooted aura does not work here. Pets and familiars are not allowed on the pyramid.

The unofficial world for the Agility Pyramid is world 70.

Requirements[edit | edit source]

Recommended[edit | edit source]

Location[edit | edit source]

  • The Agility Pyramid is situated in the dangerous Kharidian Desert, between the towns of Sophanem and Nardah.
  • It is located east from the crocodile pond north of Sophanem, past the Wanderer's tent.

Getting there[edit | edit source]

There are several ways of getting to the Agility Pyramid:

  • The fastest way is to use the Jaleustrophos teleport of the Pharaoh's sceptre.
  • Use the Desert Amulet to teleport to Nardah and run South-West.
  • Magic carpet
    • Take a carpet ride from Shantay Pass to Sophanem (requires starting Icthlarin's Little Helper), and walk north-east to the pyramid.
      • A bank is available in Sophanem upon the completion of the Contact! quest.
    • Take a carpet ride to Nardah, and walk South-west from Nardah. (The route is shown in PINK.)
      • A bank is available in Nardah.
  • Take the Camulet teleport, and run east south east.
  • Use a The Heart teleport and run south.
  • Use the fairy ring system to enter one of the desert portals, and run from there.
  • Use the ring of slaying to teleport to Sumona's house in Pollnivneach then take the carpet ride south to Nardah then walk South-west.
  • Having your POH (Player-Owned House) at Pollnivneach (or use a chipped house tablet (requires completion of Love Story)), using house teleport and then walk to the pyramid, or use the carpet.
  • Get a recommendation from Drill Sergeant Hartman and get a free teleport to the Agility Pyramid.

Items to bring[edit | edit source]

  • Source of water - as the pyramid is in the desert, and the effects of desert heat can be fatal.
  • Desert robes - reduces how often a player will need to drink, but these robes add weight. This is something to be considered in any agility training event.
  • Knife - Players can re-fill their water skins at nearby (healthy) cacti that are well placed in front of the entrance of the pyramid. A knife on the tool belt works for this.
  • Food - Players with under 60 agility may require some food. Anyone above that level will not take much (or any) damage.
  • Potions - Super energy potions, and Agility potions are very useful here (not necessary because of resting update).
  • Players can refill their waterskins at the archaeologist's camp by going south-east of the agility pyramid, if the player placed the rope at the rock. However, there are level 125 Mummies on the cliff by the rock, so Protect from Melee is advised if going this way.
  • Boots of Lightness- Reduces a player's weight by 4 kg.
  • Spotted Cape / Spottier Cape / Wicked cape - Reduces a player's weight by 2 kg / 4.5 kg / 6 kg.
  • Penance gloves - Reduces a player's weight by 7 kg.

Starting off[edit | edit source]

  • Talk to Simon Templeton, who can be found near the Agility Pyramid. He will explain that he works for the Varrock Museum, and an artefact must be retrieved from the pyramid. Retrieving the artefact is not going to be easy, as there are many obstacles to overcome in order to reach the top of the pyramid, and claim the prize.
  • Climb up the stairs to start the course.
  • You must run clockwise, layer by layer up the pyramid. There are no shortcuts.

Obstacles[edit | edit source]

Obstacle Image XP Occurrences Description
Stone block Agility pyramid rolling block.png 12 5 These blocks roll when stepped on. If successful, players will be thrown to the next block. If they fail, it will roll them down one level within the pyramid and cause 60 life points of damage. If you go backwards you will always roll down and cause 10 life points of damage. They can be recognised as grey round stones.
Low wall Agility pyramid low wall.png 8 4 These are low walls that players can climb over. Players may occasionally slip and take 40 life points of damage.
Pyramid block Agility pyramid moving block.png 0 2 Moving blocks may push players off the level. If timed properly, players will be able to get past these blocks. If incorrectly timed, players will be pushed down to the level below and hit for 80 life points of damage. It is possible to click ahead during the animation of being pushed and avoid falling.
Ledge Agility pyramid ledge.png 52 4 Players will have to walk across a small ledge. Players may occasionally trip and fall down one level, causing 100 life points of damage.
Plank Agility pyramid plank.png 56.4 2 Players will have to cross the plank "bridge" to move past. Occasionally, players may slip and fall down one level, causing 100 life points of damage.
Gap (cross) Agility pyramid gap crossing.png 56.4 3 Players will have to cross a gap. They can lose their grip and fall to the level below, causing 80 life points of damage.
Gap (jump) Agility pyramid gap jump.png 22 6 Players will have to jump over this gap. Players may occasionally miss their footing and comically fall to the level below, causing 80 life points of damage.
Stairs Agility pyramid stairs.png 0 5 Climbing up the stairs will get players one level higher.
Climbing rocks Agility pyramid climbing rocks.png 0 1 Near the end, players may climb to the top of the pyramid to claim a pyramid top.
Doorway Agility pyramid doorway.png 500 1 A doorway at the top of the pyramid lets players descend to the foot of the pyramid.
Total experience 1,214

The time taken to complete the entire course, without failing, is roughly 160 seconds (2 minutes and 40 seconds).

Finishing off[edit | edit source]

Audio options icon.png
You got (to) the top!

Reaching for the top!
  • Once at the top, players will find a temple of some sorts, with the artefact sitting on top.
  • Climb up the climbing rocks at the side of the temple, and claim the prize: the Golden Pyramid. Be sure to touch it.
  • You have a chance of getting a strange rock when you take the Golden Pyramid.
  • Go to the other side of the temple, and enter a doorway. Climbing down a steep passage leads to the base of the pyramid.
  • It is recommended to sell the pyramid top to Simon before beginning another ascent, as they are not stackable and weigh 11 kg each.
  • Treasure Hunter key tokens may also be given to the player as a reward whilst taking the Golden Pyramid.
