Hey all, just wondering if the road to Kelly Canyon was open. I checked here which says that it is closed, but I don't know how often that gets updated and was looking for some local beta. Moved from Southern Illinois to Phoenix last fall and I need a good sandstone bouldering fix! Thanks! Phillip
The road is still closed and will likely remain that way. On the bright side the walk from the closed gate isnt far at all.
There is a back way that only adds a couple of minutes to the approach. Check out google Earth. You get off of the Kachina exit and take the paved then dirt road behind the gas station.
Went to Kelly Canyon this past Sunday and the road off of the highway exit is now open.
