1: The Start
Speak to Denulth, located north of the Heroes' Guild. He will tell you that trolls have taken over the Death Plateau and that they cannot be moved. He also tells you about stone throwing trolls around the path leading up to the Plateau. The commander wants you to find an alternative route to the Plateau, but first you must go and find Sabbot the dwarf.
Go north-west from the Commander and follow the path in the same direction, past the tower, minigame area, and dead trolls until you see a cave. There will be a dungeon sign on your minimap. Enter the cave and talk to Sabbot.
Sabbot will not help you because he feels it is not his problem. Tell him you won't move until he helps you, and after he says "Fine!" return the favour. The dwarf will realise you're not going to move and agree to help you.
Sabbot tells you that there are two ways to get to the Death Plateau. The first is to attempt to climb over the rocks like some kind of cross-eyed goat. The second, proper way to get there is under the rocks by breaking into one of the natural caves in the areas. To learn more you'll have to find Sabbot's wife, Freda, who lives in the house west of his cave.
Exit the cave and follow the path west, then go south until you see Freda's cabin - go inside and talk to her. She tells you that, although there are cave surveys, humans tend to prefer climbing over rocks rather than to dig around. Freda promises to start the survey if you spike her climbing boots for her.
4: Getting the boots spiked
Freda tells you to go find Dunstan, who can be found in the sword shop in northern Burthorpe. Teleport to Burthorpe (you can use the home teleport spell) to save yourself some walking. Talk to Dunstan and he will spike the boots for you. Now go back to Freda and talk to her. She'll take back the boots and give you a survey. Read it to see a map with an X marking the spot where to dig in Sabbot's cave.
5: Getting to the Death Plateau
Go back to Sabbot's cave and mine the rock wall on the west side using your pickaxe. A passageway will appear. Sabbot will give you 5 rabbit sandwiches when you enter it. Follow the path east and then south, along the agility obstacles - past the rope swing and pillars. There will be a cliffside far south. Climb it and exit through the hole.
You will find yourself next to a level 5 troll named "The Map" after a short cutscene. Kill him and then report back to Commander Denulth.
