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

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