Blackburn has little to offer, other than the route Stranger Than Paradise. The cliff itself is impressive, but the climbing is scant.

Getting There 

Follow Spaas Creek road a little ways past the mouth of Blackburn Branch. Head uphill to the right and bear left toward the main NW corner of the cliff. You can find Stranger Than Paradise by locating two enormous boulders near the main cliff. The route is the obvious splitter in low angle rock.

Climbing Season

For the Red River Gorge area.

Weather station 2.2 miles from here
