On the way to Suncup Slab below the North Sister and just a short hike up from the Twin Sisters campsites numbers one through four sits the BLM Rock. The sheltered corridor makes a needed escape from the sun and houses technical sport climbs, some crack climbs, and some mixed gear routes.

According to the City of Rocks Idaho guide by Dave Bingham, the rock is named for Jay Goodwin, the first climbing ranger at the City in the 80's.

Getting There
