These were 270 steep wooden steps that the local prisoners had to overcome, or the prisoners on their way to work and, above all, from work back to Tábor. The stairs overcame a sharp climb in the range of 25–28 °, so they had a 50 % slope to the plane. Nothing has been preserved from the original staircase. Around 2000, however, their wooden replica was put into operation on the site of the original staircase, which is part of the nature trail of Jáchymov Hell.
