Moreover, Rashi adds, whereas the Kohen sprinkled the blood of other Korbanos on two diagonally-opposite corners below the Chut ha'Sikra, whilst standing on the floor of the Azarah, with regard to the Chatas, he had to ascend the ramp to the top of the Mizbe'ach in order to sprinkle the blood on the four K'ranos.
