(8) Fishing Spots
To the southeast are quite a few Fishing Spots, where you can catch all sorts of fish, from Shrimp to Sharks. It's by far the best place to go fishing if you're level 68 Fishing or lower, as there is a cooking range and bank nearby for easy access.

East of the fishing spots is an agility shortcut. To use this shortcut, you need 35 Ranging, 32 Agility, 35 Strength, Fishing Contest completed, and a Mithril grapple hook. This shortcut is one way from Catherby and takes you over White Wolf Mountain.
(10) Water Obelisk Agility Shortcut
North of the fishing spots is another agility shortcut. To use this shortcut, you need 29 Ranging, 36 Agility, 22 Strength, and a Mithril grapple hook. This shortcut is one way from the island, meaning you cannot use this shortcut from Catherby. The island used in this shortcut contains the Water Obelisk.
