The Rensselaer Outing club still has ancient crampons. I've used them, and they are great if you can adjust them, which is nearly impossible and requires the use of a nut driver. These stick to your boots, I've used these, and Grivel G10s both are good, I like Black Diamonds better. Hiking on icy terrain really is really easy with these.

These snowshoes are excellent same as the Denali Ascents without the "televators". However the "televators" are amazing on the Denali Ascents. If you plan on hiking any hills spend the extra money. They are short bars beneath your heel that you can pull up for hiking uphill, they are absolutely amazing. MSR beefed up the crampons on the bottom and they are tough as nails. I climbed Algonquin, Wright, and Giant Mt. in the Adirondack High peaks with the Denali Ascents. I slammed them on ice snow and rock and they look and feel brand new still.
