This article is about shortcuts in the Old School RuneScape game. For shortcut boxes in the RuneScape Wiki, see RuneScape:Shortcut.
Stile

A stile that players can use to climb over a fence.

Shortcuts can be found all around Gielinor. By climbing cliff sides, crossing rivers and squeezing through crevices, it is possible to reach a destination more directly than by the alternative route. Nearly all shortcuts require the proper Agility level. There are no guaranteed rewards for using shortcuts, except that they will save you time, but they will sometimes give small amounts of Agility experience. All shortcuts, with the exception of some of the stiles, are P2P, and some require Ranged and Strength levels. Shortcuts are identified with a twisting green arrow icon (Shortcut icon) on the minimap.

Here is a list of all of OldSchool RuneScape's shortcuts.
