Are the stairs that lead up to the tower inside or outside? There is a transition i am just not seeing clearly. There is the cave with the scragg, stairs (inside) and then rain outside, rook attack, guy hanging from flag staff. Where does that inside/outside transition happen?
My version of the adventure is a later printing with an added adventure, so it may not match-up to yours, page-wise...
The italicized description of the stairs points out that a cold sea breeze blows down from somewhere above, so there must be access to the outside in some form...
The Map forA-1 Scrag Grotto shows the stairs going under something (solid stairs symbol with a line perpendicular to it, and then "faint" stair lines thereafter). For me that's on page 64.
The illustration on page 8 for Area A-2, shows the stairs on the outside. IIRC, the original cover art showed the stairs on the outside, too.
The stairs are on the outside.
