Release and Indemnity Agreement

To: ARC’TERYX Climbing Academy , ARC’TERYX Equipment, Canada West Mountain School (hereinafter referred to as "The Organizers") and to: Her Majesty the Queen in Right of the Province of British Columbia (hereinafter referred to as "The Province")

I want to participate in the event known as the ARC’TERYX Climbing Academy organized by ARC’TERYX
Equipment and Canada West Mountain School and held in Squamish, British Columbia. I recognize that the event involves certain risks, including, but not limited to the hazards of traveling to the location of the activity, accidents or illness, unavailability of medical care, forces of nature, weather, terrain, equipment failure, and actions of other participants and persons including negligence. I accept the risks, including the risk of injury or death while participating in this activity. Included as part of this document is a more detailed description of some of the possible risks involved.

DEFINITIONS
in this agreement
a) the term "Climbing" shall include "bouldering”, “top roping”, "sport climbing", “gear climbing”, and aid climbing”.
b) the term "Climbing" shall include all activities, services, and use of facilities either provided by or arranged by the Organizers of the ARC’TERYX Climbing Academy, or in any way related to climbing, but not limited to: orientation and instructional sessions; transportation; accommodation and
recreational activities in addition to climbing; travel in or movement around the activity area and other related activities in the Event area.

ASSUMPTION OF RISKS FOR THE ARC’TERYX Climbing Academy – Climbing and similar activities are inherently dangerous. I am aware that Climbing involves risks, dangers and hazards. The most
obvious risk is falling. You may fall only a few feet or all the way to the ground or floor. As you fall you may hit obstacles or other people in your path. If the rope catches your fall the jolt from the rope may cause injury. Falling to the ground from any height can cause serious injury, even death.

In addition to the hazards of falling, you may be struck by falling objects. Holds, tools, climbing equipment, rock, ice, and even people may fall and hit you. If you are ice climbing it is very likely that you will be hit by falling ice during the activity.

The extreme usage conditions of any of these activities can cause the equipment to fail. Ropes can be abraded or cut by rubbing against the rock or other surfaces. Climbing holds may move or break. as you climb you may pull out protection or it may become un-clipped, allowing you to fall farther or hit the ground.

Improper use of the equipment can cause injury. Mistakes made by you or others may result in a buckle coming undone, a karabiner unclipping itself, letting go of the critical end of the rope, etc. Any of these errors or similar mistakes can result in severe injury or death. Even properly used equipment is no guarantee of safety.

This list is not an exclusive or exhaustive list of possible injuries, trauma or accidents that may occur while climbing. Most of these injuries are uncommon and you are not likely to encounter them. However, they have occurred and you need to be aware of them, along with the possibility that some type of injury not mentioned above may occur. By participating in this activity you agree to assume all of the risks involved, whether or not those risks are specifically listed here.
