Fight Sto'h Karrig here for a while and he will teleport to the lower east. Head back down the ladder you climbed up and head directly east from it. You will find Sto'h Karrig next to a green wooden bridge. He will then teleport to the lower west. Simply drop down from the bridge and head into the pit to the left. Fight him here for a while until he teleports again. Head up the stairs to the west and up the ladder. Watch out for the swinging spike trap and continue on to find Sto'h Karrig near his hunt's initiation point. After this, head out into the Forsaken Gulch area to the west and drop down to the area next to the cave with the Obelisk.

Sto'h Karrig, The Immovable Bastion Strategies
Sto'h Karrig is not particularly difficult, but depending on your upgrades and level, he can hit quite hard. Almost all his attacks can be avoided by jumping or rolling behind him. Ranged attacks as particularly effective as Sto'h Karrig tends to close the distance before attacking but has a very slow, lumbering walk. Run away from him and pelt him with your ranged weapons as he slowly walks towards you.
The best window for attacking Sto'h Karrig is during his Rock Barrage move. This attack fires in a diagonal path towards the ground in front of him and the area directly in front of his legs is completely safe. Making your way to his legs while he casts the spell will allow you to get at least 3 hits in and even more with faster weapons. For his Geo Punch move, there is a small window while he raises his fist where you can roll towards his back, completely avoiding the jagged rocks and allowing you to get a couple hits in. The Geo Stomp move has a similar obvious telegraph with the raising of his leg, also allowing you to get behind him and punish the mage.
After depleting his HP, Sto'h Karrig falls to his knees, allowing you to devour his heart and end the encounter.
