I've been to Tieton River Canyon twice before.

The first time was end of June early July 2010, and it was quite hot at the Royal Columns and The Bend, but nice at Lava Point.

The second time was in mid/late July 2011, but it wasn't as hot. That time we climbed at the Royal Columns, South Fork, and Lava Point.

We're planning on climbing at Tieton River Canyon on April 17-18, en route to Moab/Indian Creek.

I'm hoping to do some climbing at Lava Point, especially Dream Wall, but will the road leading up to it still be covered in snow by then?

You can access Lava Pt from below, hiking uphill to it, no need to drive up the road in question. Turn left onto Wildcat Rd below the wall, off of Hwy 12 just east of the tunnel....while you're there, go climb Wildcat Crack to get those knuckles in shape for the desert cracks!
