Stealth Guide: Sneaking into Wincestre Garrison

IMPORTANT: It is recommended that you have the Advanced Assassination skill for this method.
Start by sneaking along Wincestre Garrison's outer wall.
Eliminate any guards in the way.
Look for a building with a key inside it using Odin's Sight.
Head to the roof via the branches of this tree.
WARNING: A guard may be stationed atop the building. Snipe him via Hunter Bows or Predator Bows if necessary.
Jump down towards the stairs and sneak to the edge of the building.
Make sure the coast is clear before dropping down.
Sneak into the building and grab the key inside.
TIP: Guards will not react to the sound of the door opening. Just make sure no one is looking towards your path or directly at the door before crossing.
Cut through the bushes and unlock the door that leads to the garrison's keep.
Survey enemy positions via Odin's Sight before exiting the doorway.
You can enter the keep from the front or sides depending on their positions. Adjust your route accordingly.
Prioritize taking out the archer overlooking the entire area with your bow.
You can shoot the platform the archer's standing on top of to instantly kill him. Make sure no one else is around you before shooting the arrow to avoid detection.
Goodwin is behind a barred cellar door at the keep's basement.
Head to the upper levels of the keep and look for a barred door that leads to the documents.
Shoot the link of the other barred door from the narrow window beside the first one.
Head to the highest floor and look for the door you unbarred earlier.
Jump down and enter the room to grab the documents.
