In order to achieve the slant necessary for stairs, you need to extend the stair tiles one tile above and one tile below. Like this:
    Code:
    # are slanty cliffs
    |_ are vertical cliffs
    = are stairs
     
    |         |          
    |   ===   |          ##       ##
    |_|_===_|_|          ####===####
    |_|_===_|_|          ####===####
        ===
    Vertical Cliffs    Slanty Cliffs
    Why one tile above? It would look just as good only with 1 extra tile below. Better, actually.
