An arched opening leads to a broad spiral staircase which is cut into the rock. The stairs are not very steep, since they circle around like a corkscrew. The first of several landings looks out over the Valley of Voe.
A second landing, halfway up the mountain, looks out on the side opposite Voe. Far below is a black sea with rolling billows and little tongues of flame. Giants Birds with fierce eyes and sharp talons and beaks fly above the sea. A fleecy cloudbank is nearly level with the opening and Cloud Fairies can be seen. The Braided Man lives on this second landing.
A third landing looks out on a rolling cloudbank that obscures anything else that might be visible.
