What is the status of the Oak Creek Overlook after the most recent fires? Is it open to climbing? Any info would be really appreciated.

Yes. I think it is open. I am not sure if it ever closed during the fire.

If you wish to double check, the phone number for the supervisor's office is: (928)527-3600

Here is a link to the areas still closed from the fire:

Thanks, Scott! Just to be sure, I called the number you provided and spoke with the Coconino NF, Sedona Office. I was told that I was "good to go" and that the overlook was open to climbing.

I was climbing there on Sunday.
You might want to keep an eye on recent rain totals for the Flagstaff airport (not far away). If you have a really good soaking, the Overlook can get pretty muddy for a day or two (especially if it stays cloudy).
It is raining pretty hard here today, BTW.
