Two of the most famous collapse caves in Saxon Switzerland, the Lichterhöhle and the Hampelhöhle, are located on the south side. In 1461 the Kleinhennersdorfer Stein was first mentioned in a document as the Heynersdorfer Stein. Around 1870, the Königstein resident Friedrich Herrmann Hempel started the commercial mining of sandstone, which was crushed and ground and sold as abrasive sand to inns and soap factories. On December 17, 1918, Hempel lost his life when a rock collapsed.
There is no signposted path leading to the Kleinhennersdorfer Stein. An ascent along a narrow path is possible from the saddle on the south side.
