Descending, reesetee, descending. The ascending pillagers are meant to be hampered by the clockwise orientation, while you, the worthy householder, are permitted to descend with sword a-flashing and a-slashing.

Fencing! Dude! I used to fence in college (don't anymore) but my S.O. and friends started (practically) a local fencing club. Do you still fence? Do you have any fencing lists? (Like, ones I can pillage?) :)
In castle architecture, "a compact staircase often built into the walls of castles. Usually designed so that attackers climbing a clockwise staircase would find it hard to fight with their right hand, whilst descending defenders would have their right (sword) arm free." Other names are corkscrew stairs and turnpike.
