They are probably too wide to fit crampons., they will also have an incredibly stiff ankle which will not be fun to hike with.  Sorry.

No and no. They are too wide to fit crampons. And probably have a number of other problems that would not make them any good for alpine or ice climbing.

Aanif - what size shoe are you? I have a pair of mountaineering boots that are old but would be much better than those. I have no idea what shipping would cost from New York, but if they fit and you're willing to pay the shipping, you can have them for free. Climbing in those snowboarding boots will leave you hating climbing!

I've seen split boarders use strap on g12s on snow board boots. If its all you can get your hands on then a strap on crampon is your only option and you'll be good to go. Ice climbing in them is definitely a no go.

I have been using these boots for quite some time now... They are really good but as soon as the temperature falls below -10C my feet go numb...!!! I even made it to Nanga Parbat Camp 1 in these. but I really need something warm now...

Unfortunately, my boots will be too small (and not much warmer than those). Good luck!

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
