Grotto Canyon is a popular spring hike, with the route heading straight up the creekbed.
This year, spring was so late to arrive that there was still a 3' thick sheet of ice blocking travel beyond the pictographs.
We skipped past it on the slope above, then rejoined the creek on the other side of the ice.
