Lead Climbing Rules and Assumption of Risk

Acknowledgment of risk:  I recognize that there are significant elements of risk associated with the sport of rock climbing, including, but not limited to, injury or death, and I understand that no amount of care, caution, instruction or expertise can eliminate these risks.   

I Agree

I certify that I have experience lead climbing and / or belaying, or that I am enrolled in the Earth Treks Introduction to Sport Lead Climbing class.  I am fully aware of the significant risks of lead climbing. These include, but are not limited to:

1. Long falls.
2. Ground falls.
3. Hard impact with climbing wall surface.
4. Feet hitting holds and injuring feet, legs, etc.
5. Falling and inverting by hitting holds, having ropes tangled behind the climber’s legs or other causes which may result in serious injury.
6. Severe abrasions due to rope burn and contact with the climbing surface.
7. Protection, hooks, holds and other devices becoming dislodged with great force and delivering a significant blow to the climber and/or belayer.
8. Becoming entangled in the rope during a fall.
9. Being hit by other climbers falling.

I Agree

I have read and understand all the gym rules, including, but not limited to, the lead climbing rules, and I agree to abide by them. Individuals desiring to lead belay or lead climb at Earth Treks must be at least 13 years of age and pass the corresponding Belay Check.  Limited exceptions to the age requirement are made for Earth Treks climbing team members.

I understand that signing this document does not give me the ability to lead climb or belay unsupervised and that I must first take and pass the Lead Climb and Belay Check. Those individuals who do not pass or choose to not take the Belay Check may not belay or tie knots and must wait a minimum of 24 hours before taking or re-taking the Belay Check. I understand that learning to lead climb at Earth Treks does not qualify me to lead climb outside.  

I Agree

Individuals who have passed the Lead Climb Check may borrow a lead rope at the front desk, or use a personal rope provided it’s a single UIAA approved rope, and meets the minimum length as required by the gym. I understand and acknowledge that I am responsible for the maintenance and inspection of my personal gear and any rental/loaner equipment including but not limited to harnesses, ropes, belay devices and carabiners prior to every use.

I understand that if I breach any of the lead climbing rules my lead privileges may be permanently revoked. I understand that Earth Treks is not responsible for enforcing any climbing rules in the facility. Earth Treks staff reserve the right to revoke belay privileges at any time.

THIS AGREEMENT MATERIALLY LIMITS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. DO NOT SIGN IT UNLESS YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ITS TERMS.

I HAVE CAREFULLY READ ALL PAGES OF THIS AGREEMENT AND FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS CONTENTS.

I CERTIFY THAT I AM AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE ON THE DATE HEREOF

I have read, understand and signed the Earth Treks Waiver, Release of Liability, and Assumption of Risks agreement.

I represent that I am the parent or legal guardian of the above individual (“Participant”) and I further represent that I am executing this assumption of risk agreement on behalf of myself, individually, and on behalf of my minor child. I understand that I am electing to allow my child to participate in Lead Climbing as a Lead Climber and/or as a Lead Belayer. I understand that Lead Climbing is a climbing activity with two participants – a “Lead Climber” who climbs up the wall, clipping in a rope as he or she climbs, and a “Lead Belayer” who manages the rope from the ground in an attempt to arrest any fall, and to lower the Lead Climber to the ground. Lead Climbing may also involve climbing a route that has been led by another Lead Climber (“Seconding” a route). As a parent or legal guardian of a minor Lead Climber, I am aware that the Lead Belayer, who may also be a minor, has a significant responsibility for the safety of the Lead Climber and there is no guarantee that the Lead Belayer will be able to arrest the Lead Climber’s fall.
