The Long Stairs
Running down either side of the Schism not far from The Crossing, sets of switchback stairs extend from ground level all the way down to the bottom of the Schism.
The Long Stairs on Low Side are pockmarked with collapsed entrances to the ruined mines beneath the Tumbledown, along with one “official” entrance guarded by a detachment of Watchmen deemed particularly in need of discipline or a good workout. There are also a few “unofficial” entrances used by those who need a little something from the old mines.
While patrolled by the Watch and well constructed (if indifferently maintained) the Long Stairs can still be very dangerous in bad weather, or if someone decides to throw you off of them. Or worse, both.
