How to Get to the Mountaintops of Giants in Elden Ring

Want to know how you can get to the Mountaintops of Giants in Elden Ring?

The Mountaintops of Giants is one of the final areas you can explore in Elden Ring. You’ll only be able to access it after finishing Lyndell, Royal Capital. That includes killing the Demigod Morgott, which you will encounter after defeating the golden version of Godfrey. 

Once Morgott is dealt with, Melina will instruct you to burn the thorns that keep you from accessing the Erdtree. 

As you know by now, completing the quests in Elden Ring isn’t as easy as going to a waypoint and speaking to an NPC. It usually involves a lot of tasks, and most instructions given by the characters you meet are not clear. 

If you are reading this, you probably want to know how you can get to the Mountaintops of Giants. 

Luckily, you’ve come to the right place. 

In this guide, we’ll show you how to reach the Mountaintops of Giants in Elden Ring. 

Let’s get right into it!

Reaching the Mountaintops of Giants

In Elden Ring, you can get to the Mountaintops of Giants using the Grand Lift of Rold. Before you can access this elusive area, you’ll need to obtain the Rold Medallion to unlock the larger Eastern region.

You will also need both pieces of the Haligtree Secret Medallion to unlock this western region. 

The Mountaintops of Giants in Elden Ring is a hard late-game location, so you should be adequately leveled before attempting to explore this terrain. 

In addition, this area is also home to some of the most challenging bosses and the most intricate side quests. While some of the optional bosses could be challenging, there are some lucrative rewards to be found. 

To locate the Rold Medallions, you need to advance the game until reaching Leyndell, Royal Capital.

From here, you will need to defeat the boss Morgott, the Omen King. 

If you want to make this entire fight easier, you have to use the Mimic Tear Spirit Ash Summon or go for the Hoarfrost Stomp Ash of War. After slaying Morgoot, you need to speak with Melina to get the Rold Medallion. 

Once you have to Rold Medallion, you can head northeast through the Forbidden Lands until you reach the Grand Lift of Rold Site of Grace. 

While traversing this route, you’ll encounter a Kindred boss, which you can fight or evade. 

At the Site of Grace, players can climb the stairs to the lift. Once at the top, you will find two large guardian statues wielding spears. The ground in front of the statues will be marked with a circle, and you can stand in the circle to choose “Hoist Medallion” and use the Rold Medallion. 

Explore the Zamor Ruins

After using the Grand Lift and reaching the Mountaintops of Giants, the Zamor Ruins is the first area you’ll discover. There are some decent items scattered around this area, including the Smithing-Stone Miner’s Bell 3. 

This area is also meant to introduce you to the enemies you’ll encounter in the Mountaintops of Giants. 

Most bosses and enemies in this area are tall and pretty tough. They can attack quickly, and there are tons of them scattered in Zamor Ruins. 

Crossing the Stone Bridge

Once you get past the Zamor Ruins, you will find a massive stone walkway that is very slim and almost looks like a bridge that closes the gap between you and the rest of the Mountaintops of Giants.

On the other side of the bridge, you’ll see a golem with a bow and arrow. Unfortunately, there’s limited cover across this gap, and there’s a good chance that some of the arrows will hit you and knock you off the ledge. 

While it’s a mild fall, the best way to cross it is to hop on to TOrrent and go across the bridge at max speed. In the middle section of the bridge, you’ll find a few items, including some smithing stones. 

However, gather these items carefully as the golem’s arrows might hit you. 

Fight an Ice Dragon

On the other side of the stone bridge, you’ll find yourself in the lower portion of the canyon, with a river running through it. If you head northeast, you’ll see a massive ice lake. From this area, you can head up to the top side of the cliffs that hang over the canyon. 

In the center of the lake, the snow gets really dense, lowering your visibility. You’ll find Borealis, the Freezing Fog dragon, in this area. 

If you can defeat Borealis, you can get 100,000 Runes and a dragon heart for killing it. However, this boss is only optional and can be a bit difficult, especially if you just arrived in the Mountaintops of Giants. 

On the south edge of the lake, you’ll also find the First Church of Marika, which contains a Sacred Tear to upgrade your flasks. 

Fight a Giant and Burn the Erdtree

The final area you can check out in the Mountaintops of Giants is the southeastern area, where you’ll find the Fire Giant boss. This NPC stands between you and advancing the story. After finishing the fight, there isn’t much to check out in the Mountaintops, except for the Forge of the Giants. 

Once you reach the top of the forge, go around the edge to reach the final Site of Grace in this area. From here, you can speak to Melina to advance the story.
