The Endless Stair is a Companion Set adventure which begins in an inn, with the player characters hearing a rumor which leads them to a wizard's tomb. A mysterious doorway opens in the rocks atop Glazar's Crag, and the characters go to see what is on the other side.
The Great Mage Cheiromar is said to be buried under the Leaning Stone on top of Galzar's Crag. One of his apprentices Ulthorn, has been discovered dead in an aperture of the Leaning Stone (a doorway that has reportedly never existed before). The player characters must discover how Ulthorn died and the mystery of the Leaning Stone. In the process they may find the Endless Stair which seems to lead nowhere, although those who have tried to climb it never lived to tell the tale.
James Wallis reviewed The Endless Stair for the British magazine Adventurer #11 (June/July 1987). He comments, admittedly snidely, "It's nice to see that TSR can still churn them out. What we have here is a typical D&D Companion Set adventure. It starts (can you guess?) in an inn. Something Suspicious Happens and the party get a rumour. They follow up the rumour and find (gasp!) a Wizard's Tomb, complete with the Far Freaking Weird Powerful Magic Item, the Standard Non-Existent Page Reference and the standard TSR Glaring Inconsistency. The party follow up on a lead; they get here and, harassed by NPCs, finally get to the Endless Stair..." Wallis commented more seriously: "This adventure is competently written, apart from a couple of minor errors, and would doubtless make an enjoyable week-end's play. The trouble is that it lacks and kind of variety from standard D&D fare; it could be a first-level adventure except for the powerful NPCs, magic items and monsters. [...] It's a pity that products of the qualify of The Grand Duchy of Karameikos coming out for D&D, this is the best that can be done in the way of adventures."
