Goddard’s Wall is new (Sept 2014), easily accessible addition to the Stoney Middleton crags, located on the opposite side of the road to Garage Buttress.

Character

Most of the routes are just off vertical face climbing though Red Mist (7a) gently overhangs for the top half.

Aspect

This compact little wall faces north and is shady though sheltered from wind.

Approach

When heading westwards on the A623 pass through the village of Stoney Middleton, past the Little India cafe on the right. Just past this on the left side of the road is a good parking area. Walk up the Dale a short way to a large wooden gate and a stile opposite the Garage. Hop over this and follow the path for about 100 metres. The wall is directly in front.
