Does anyone know if the road in to Lime Kiln Canyon (White Rock Road in Northern Arizona) is open right now? Apparently a sign has been posted reading "White Rock Road will be closed from Feb 21 - April 21".

I am planning on going next Sunday-Monday but don't want to be surprised by a closure.

Still no info less then a month old.  Anyone climb at Lime Kiln in the last few days?

Yeah, you can circumvent the paving operations with a few dirt roads off to the side.  Take Paiute street till it dead-ends and then branch into Lime Kiln Canyon road just after the road-closed sign.

There's a lot of braided roads here, so using the above map to ensure you're on the best one might help.  We took a less-optimal one in my buddy's rented Nissan Versa but made it out there with no real trouble.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
