The Agility Pyramid.

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.




  • 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

There are several ways of getting to the Agility Pyramid:

  • The fastest way is to use the Jaleustrophos teleport of the Pharaoh's sceptre.
  • 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 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

  • 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

  • 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.

Rolling Blocks 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. You can examine them on the floor below, and they are called stone blocks.

Finishing off

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.
