Assumption of Risk & Responsibility & Release of Liability
WARNING: There are significant elements of risk in any adventure, sport or activity associated with a “rock gym”, climbing wall, bouldering area, and incidental equipment (referred to herein as “activity”). Although we have taken reasonable steps to always provide you with appropriate equipment and additionally to provide you with skilled instructors specifically when needed and also when requested so you can enjoy an activity for which you may not be skilled, we wish to remind you this activity is not without risk. Certain risks cannot be eliminated without destroying the unique character of the activity. The same elements that contribute to the unique character of the activity can be causes of loss or damage to your equipment, or accidental injury, illness, or in extreme cases, permanent trauma or death.
ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF RISKS: I acknowledge that the following describes some, but not all of the risks: 1) Slips, trips, falls or painful crashes while using the facilities or equipment, climbing walls, bouldering areas, landing pits, work out areas, floors below climbing areas, bathroom facilities, or stairs; 2) Risk associated with crossing, climbing, or climbing down/rappeling. 3) Misuses of equipment or facilities or failure of equipment. 4) My physical strength, coordination, sense of balance, and ability to follow or give directions while climbing, belaying, or working out: 5)Fatigue, chill and/or dizziness, which may diminish my/our reaction- time and increase the risk of accident. 6) Abrasion from or entanglement with ropes or equipment: 7) The presence, actions or falls of other participants. I understand the description of these risks is not complete and that other unknown or unanticipated risks may result in injury, illness, or death.
EXPRESS ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND RESPONSIBILITY: In recognition of the inherent risks in the activity which I and any minor children for which I am responsible, will engage in, I confirm that I am (we are) physically and mentally capable of participating in the activity and/or using equipment, I/We participate willingly and voluntarily and I assume full responsibility for personal injury, accidents or illness (including death), and any related expenses. I also assume risk for accidents or injury caused by the negligence of my belayer or spotter whether such negligence is comparative or contributory. I am aware of the meaning of the terms “Unroped Climbing” (aka: “Bouldering”), “Top Rope Climbing”, and “Lead Climbing” and understand the differences between the activities. I accept to be “checked out” on climbing and belaying skills prior to participation, and to follow posted rules. I acknowledge that wearing appropriate clothing and footwear are basic safety precautions that may help prevent injuries. I assume the risk(s) of personal injury, accidents and/or illness, including but not limited to sprains, torn muscles and/or ligaments; fractured or broken bones; eye damage; cuts, wounds, scrapes, abrasions, and/or contusions; head, neck and/or spinal injuries; shock, paralysis, and/or death.
COVENANT OF GOOD FAITH: I recognize that you, as provider of services, will operate under a covenant of good faith and fair dealing, but that you may find it necessary to refuse or terminate the participation of any person you judge to be incapable of meeting the rigors or requirements of participation in the activity. I accept your right to take such actions for the safety of myself and/or other participants.
AUTHORIZATION: I hereby authorize any medical treatment deemed necessary in the event of any injury or illness while participating in the activity. I either have appropriate insurance or, in its absence, agree to pay all costs of rescue and/or medical services as may be incurred for my/our behalf.
RELEASE: In consideration of services or property provided, I, for myself and any minor children for which I am parent, legal guardian or otherwise responsible, any heirs, personal representatives or assigns do hereby release and agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless: Elite Climbing, LLC., d/b/a Elite Climbing, its principals, directors, officers, agents, employees and volunteers, and each and every land owner, municipal and/or governmental agency upon whose property an activity is conducted, from all liability and waive any claim for damage arising from any causes whatsoever WHETHER ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF RELEASEES OR OTHERWISE, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
I have read and understood the foregoing acknowledgment of risk, assumption of risk and responsibility, and release of liability. I understand that by signing this form I may be waiving valuable legal rights.
