This guide covers hunting Grenwalls at higher levels within the private hunting areas. A guide on hunting Grenwalls normally in Tirannwn can be found here. The private hunting areas are located in the Tree Gnome Stronghold, near the entrance and the Gnome Stronghold Agility Course. Using the private hunting areas requires quota tickets, which can be purchased with Competence points earned from participating in Big Chinchompa.

Grenwall spikes, worth 1,729 coins each, are used as an ingredient for extreme ranging potions. Due to their use in Herblore, they maintain high demand. When caught, Grenwalls yield bones, between 18 and 21 Grenwall spikes, and occasionally a grimy herb.

Hunter gear does not improve the chances of catching Grenwalls successfully, however standing too close to the traps may deter the Grenwall from the trap. The Tirannwn quiver 2 from the Tirannwn tasks set will remove the need for bait, effectively increasing profits and reducing the time it takes to completely set a trap. The Arctic bear familiar gives an invisible +7 boost to Hunter, and the Scentless potion renders traps set by the player as if they have been smoked.

Using both the Tirannwn quiver 2 and the Arctic Bear familiar, it's possible to achieve over 200 catches per hour at level 85+ Hunter. With Scentless potions, the Arctic Bear familiar, and the Tirannwn quiver 2, at level 99 Hunter, it's possible to achieve 300 to 350 catches per hour.

They may also drop an assortment of grimy herbs, from ranarr to dwarf weed (excluding spirit weed, wergali, and snapdragon). It can be advantageous to bring a Bonecrusher for easy prayer experience and a herbicide for unwanted herbs.
