Elden Ring: How to Get to Mountaintops of the Giants

Here’s how you can get to the Mountaintops of the Giants Location in Elden Ring by using the Grand Lift of Rold!

Elden Ring’s story takes you all the way across the Lands Between. However, some locations are more difficult to get to than others.

While climbing Mt. Gelmir and reaching Volcano Manor can be a perilous journey, getting to the Mountaintops of the Giants requires following a fairly simple path. That doesn’t mean it’s easy though!

You’ll need to get a unique item – the Rold Medallion – and cross the Forbidden Lands to get there. Here’s where you can find it so you can get to Mountaintops of the Giants.

There are also hidden areas in Elden Ring you’ll want to visit:

Where to Find The Rold Medallion

How to Get to The Forbidden Lands

The Forbidden Lands is an area in Elden Ring that leads players to the Grand Lift of Rold and to the final stages of the game.

It connects Leyndell, Royal Capital, with the Mountaintops of the Giants.

Step-by-Step Guide to Reach Forbidden Lands

  • After defeating Morgott, fast travel to the Avenue Balcony Site of Grace. From here, head up the stairs.
  • Once you reach the end of the stairs, begin to head left down the large road. You should run past a giant carriage and through two big doors into a barren landscape.
