"Puffing loudly, Harry, Ron, and Hermione climbed the tightly spiralling steps, getting dizzier and dizzier, until at last they heard the murmur of voices above them and knew they had reached the classroom."
—Narrative[src]

The Divination Stairwell[1] was a narrow, spiralling set of stairs accessible from a corridor on the seventh-floor. At the top of the staircase was a small landing with a trap door on the ceiling, from which a ladder could be ascended to allow access to the Divination Classroom. A portrait of a group of women in crinolines hung near the bottom of the stairwell, while a painting of sinister-looking monks near the top.[2] It took five minutes to get from the bottom of the stairwell to the Fat Lady's Corridor.[3]
