It appears that you left out the required railing on the south side of the southernmost ramp. If it is there, I can’t see it.

I have seen others turn the stair railing extension 90 degrees as you have done but I do wonder if that is acceptable. The code calls for the railing extensions to extend horizontally 12” past the top and bottom risers. I assumed that the extension would continue in the same direction as the stair. Can anyone clear this up?

Wow. I did forget the railing! Thanks. Not sure on the 90 degree extension. I've seen it done elsewhere so clarification would be great, if anyone knows for sure.
