Champney Falls sits in a box canyon a mile and a half from New Hampshire’s Kancamagus Highway. In the summer this unimpressive seep of water oozes over a mossy cliffband on the flank of Mount Chocoura. When the mercury drops the water locks up, forming a 50-foot high wall of dazzling ice pillars and daggers on one side of the canyon wall. Champney is one of the regions best ice climbing school rooms and is often utilized by guides during the annual Mount Washington Valley Ice Fest.
