For greater certainty, I assume any and all risk that I may contract an illness, including COVID-19, while at the facility or a Boulderz Climbing Centre event, notwithstanding reasonable steps and precautions taken by the Centre to prevent or mitigate the risk of such illness or illnesses.

BELAYING AGREEMENT AND SAFETY CHECK
When I learn or demonstrate to Boulderz Climbing Centre how to belay, if applicable now or at a future date, I recognize that belaying is a dangerous activity, and assume all responsibility for learning accurately how to perform this activity. I have read and initialed the “Agreement, Waiver & Release component” and I understand the nature of the sport I am engaging in. I will abide by current and future Boulderz Climbing Centre policies and the rules of the facility. I recognize that the definition of belaying is to secure the climber, and I will do so in accordance with Boulderz Climbing Centre policy standard procedures and as directed by staff. I also take responsibility for making sure that any belayer or climber with whom I participate in this activity is proficient in
these skills, and Boulderz Climbing Centre will not be responsible for poor judgment made by a belayer.
