Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk, and Indemnity Agreement

NOTICE: THIS IS A LEGALLY BINDING AGREEMENT ­ PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

In consideration of being permitted to use V18 Rentals, (hereinafter, the “Company”) equipment/gear I hereby release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue the Company, its officers, directors, employees, servants, agents, representatives, assigns (the “Releasees”) from all liability to the undersigned, my personal representatives, assigns, heirs and next of kin for any and all present and future claims for any loss, damages, theft of personal property, personal injury, bodily injury or death, whether caused by the negligence of the Releasees or otherwise, in any way arising from my use or any other person’s use of the Company’s equipment/gear. This release includes, but is not necessarily limited to, claims relating to: the design, construction, manufacture, installation and maintenance of gear/equipment, and all of its component parts; breach of contract or breach of warranty; failure to provide or negligently providing warnings, training, instruction or supervision; and all other negligence claims of whatever nature.

Acknowledgement and Assumption of Risk

I HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE that the sport of bouldering and/or climbing anything, and any other unlisted thing that involves the use of the Company’s gear/equipment, involves risks, dangers, and hazards that are inherent to the activity, and which present a risk of injury or death. I am fully aware that the sport of bouldering and/or climbing carries with it certain inherent risks that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries. I have full knowledge of and understand the nature and extent of all the risks associated with rock climbing and the use of rock climbing gear/equipment, which include, but are not limited to:

  1. All manner of injury resulting from falling, including, but without limitation to, hitting rock faces and projections and the ground;

  2. Rope abrasion, entanglement and other injuries resulting from activities, but not limited   to, climbing, bouldering, belaying, lowering on a rope, and any other rope techniques;

  3. Injuries resulting from falling climbers or dropped items such as, but not limited to, ropes or climbers’ hardware;

  4. Cuts and abrasions resulting from skin contact with anything indoors or outdoors, in nature or manufactured;

  5. Failure of ropes, slings, harnesses, climbing hardware, anchor points, handholds, or any part of any indoor or outdoor structure or environment natural or manufactured.  I understand that everything has a breaking point and that creates inherent danger.

I further acknowledge that the above list is not inclusive of all possible risks associated with the use of the Company’s gear/equipment, and that the above list in no way limits the extent or reach of this waiver, assumption of risk, and indemnity agreement.

I also acknowledge and understand that while the gear/equipment is made to provide some cushioning, it does not eliminate the risk of injury, including dislocating a joint, spraining, straining or tearing muscles, tendons or ligaments, fractures, heart attacks, concussions, head trauma, paralysis, catastrophic injuries or death.

I VOLUNTARILY ASSUME FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY RISK OF LOSS, PROPERTY DAMAGE OR PERSONAL INJURY, INCLUDING DEATH, THAT MAY BE SUSTAINED BY ME, OR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF PROPERTY OWNED BY ME, AS A RESULT OF USING THE COMPANY’S EQUIPMENT/GEAR, WHETHER CAUSED BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASEES OR OTHERWISE.

Indemnification and Hold Harmless:

I also agree to indemnify and hold the Releasees harmless from any and all claims, actions, suits, procedures, losses, expenses, damages, liabilities and costs, including court costs and attorney’s fees brought in connection with, in any manner, the Company’s equipment/gear, whether caused by the negligence of the Releasees or otherwise, and to reimburse them for any such expenses incurred.

Inclusiveness:

It is my express intent that this waiver of liability, assumption of risk, and indemnity agreement shall bind the members of my family, spouse, children, my heirs, assigns, next of kin, executors, administrators, and personal representatives, and shall be deemed as a release, waiver, discharge and covenant not to sue the above-named Releasees.

Severability:

The undersigned further expressly agrees that the foregoing waiver of liability, assumption of the risk, and indemnity agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the law of the State of California and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.

Acknowledgement of Understanding:

I FREELY ACCEPT AND FULLY ACKNOWLEDGE that the Company does not permit anyone other than myself to use its gear/equipment at all, or in any fashion. I FREELY ACCEPT AND FULLY ACKNOWLEDGE that the Company only permits: Only ME to use its gear/equipment, and that no other person or persons may in any case use the Company’s gear/equipment. I hereby agree to accept full responsibility, and to indemnify the Company for any injury, damage, or loss suffered by any other person in connection with the use of the gear/equipment that I am renting from the Company.

I have read this waiver of liability, assumption of risk, and indemnity agreement, fully understand its terms, and understand that I am giving up substantial rights, including my right to sue. I acknowledge that I am signing this agreement freely and voluntarily, and intend by my signature to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by the law.

I further certify that I am 18 years old or older and that I am therefore of lawful age (18 years or older) and otherwise legally competent to represent myself and to accept and agree to the terms of this Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk, and Indemnity Agreement.
