Part of a step (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

riser

'part of a step' is the definition.
('riser' is part of 'step')

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for riser that I've seen before include "Vertical piece between stair steps" , "Vertical piece between treads of staircase" , "Vertical upward pipe" , "Upright part of stair step" , "Upright piece in stairs" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
