I know you can rent them at REI in Reading and EMS in North Conway, but I am pretty sure that both places will also require you rent a double plastic boot along with the crampons.

Try IME, it is across the street from EMS in North Conway. They have crampons for rent. I dont know if you need to rent the double plastic boots tho.

I did some research and found that REI in Reading, MA rents them for something like $25, boots included. Thats kind of on the way up for me so that would be my plan if i need to rent them for my dad. We havn't had an opportunity to hike together in the past 2 months or so, so I've mainly been going solo. Which means i never needed to rent them for him because i have my own pair.

I'm going to have to check out IME's rates and stuff just incase the time comes when we do head up.
Thanks.
