The midpoint is a quarter circle around the point where the wall
meets the floor. To see why, note that the line segment connecting
the point where the wall meets the floor with the midpoint of the ladder
is the reflection of the line segment connecting the midpoint of the ladder
to the endpoint of the latter that is on the ground.
