The larger of the two giant boulders. By the river so can be quite a few mosquitos sometimes. Good condition, was re-bolted around 2016.


Enjoyable climbing on a hot day as its pretty sheltered and the river is just there for a dip between climbs.

Access issues

Mosquitos can be a worry sometimes.


8-10 minute walk from the carpark 'Parkplatz G‘schwandwald' - you can look for it on google maps. Just walk back along the road east from the carpark, walk past the Kleiner Dom-Stein and in a couple of minutes the Großer will be there on your right.

Where to stay

Campground 5 minute drive between Grainau and Garmisch, people also park in the park area for the night but it is forbidden and can attract a fine.
