Release of Liability, Indemnity, and Assumption of Risk

In consideration of being permitted to use Bridges Rock Gym and/or any other facility owned or operated by Interior Elevation, LLC or its affiliates (together, the “Company”), or participate in any Company trainings, programs, events or activities, I voluntarily and with full capacity enter into this Release of Liability, Indemnity, and Assumption of Risk Agreement (this “Agreement”).

1.        REPS & WARRANTIES. I have read the following list carefully, and I represent and warrant that:

a. I understand and acknowledge that the trainings, programs, and events held by the Company, either at Bridges Rock Gym or any other location, may expose me to inherent risks, both foreseeable and unforeseeable, including accidents, injury, illness, or even death.

b. I am familiar with the sports of indoor rock climbing and slacklining, and I understand and appreciate that both activities are inherently dangerous.

c. I understand that there are inherent risks (i) in using climbing walls or other equipment, (ii) in participating in yoga, fitness classes and other activities, and (iii) merely being on the Bridges Rock Gym premises or any other location where the Company conducts its activities.

d. I understand and acknowledge that climbing at Bridges Rock Gym or any other facility is not intended to prepare me for the risks and hazards of outdoor climbing.

e. I understand that climbing holds can and do spin, break, or otherwise fail, which may result in unexpected ground-fall, and that as a result of climbing hold, hardware, or gear failure, I may be struck by falling climbers or other objects, regardless of safety equipment, safety checks and supervision by the Company’s employees.

f. I am physically and mentally able to engage in all Company activities in which I opt to participate. 

2.        ASSUMPTION OF RISK. Knowing these and other risks, I choose to enter the Bridges Rock Gym premises, utilize its facilities, and/or participate in Company activities, wherever located. I accept and assume full responsibility for any and all risks of bodily injury, including permanent disability and death; property damage; noneconomic damage; and loss of any type; not only in ways that I might anticipate as a result of participating in certain activities, but also in ways that are unknown and unexpected, and even when I follow the instructions of Bridges Rock Gym, am supervised, and adhere to all procedures.

3.        WAIVER AND RELEASE. I hereby waive, release, and discharge the Company and its affiliated entities (whenever formed), their principals, managers, directors, employees, contractors, officers, representatives and agents (collectively, the “Company Parties”), from any and all claims, demands, damages, losses, expense, causes of action which I now have or may have in the future (“Claims”), arising out of or related to the risks described in Section 2, Bridges Rock Gym, or any activities sponsored by the Company, wherever conducted, and due to any cause whatsoever, including the negligence on the part of Company Parties. As further consideration, I hereby waive the provisions of Section 1542 of the California Civil Code, which reads as follows:

"A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor."

4.        COVENANT NOT TO SUE. I hereby covenant and agree not to sue or bring, maintain, or voluntarily aid any type of action (legal, equitable, administrative or otherwise) against any of the Company Parties, either affirmatively or by way of cross-complaint, defense or counterclaim, with respect to Claims described in Sections 3, above. This provision shall be construed as a covenant not to sue.  

5.        INDEMNITY. I agree to indemnity, hold harmless, and defend the Company Parties from any Claims described in Sections 3, above. Notwithstanding the prior sentence, I understand I shall not be required to indemnify the Company Parties for Claims arising from or related to the gross negligence or intentional or willful act of any of the Company Parties.

6.        MY ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE.  I expressly covenant that I will communicate with Company staff regarding any physical and/or psychological issues that might impact my participation in any Company activity or that might potentially cause risk of harm to myself, other participants, or invitees. I agree to consult my physician before engaging in any Company activities if I have any questions.

7.        SUCCESSOR AND ASSIGNS. This Agreement shall be binding on my heirs, assignees, dependents, guardians, administrators, personal representatives and estate (together, “Successors”).

8.        ARBITRATION. I expressly agree that any claim or controversy that arises out of or relates to this Agreement, or the breach of it, shall be settled by arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Such arbitration shall be binding upon the parties and judgment upon the award rendered may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. 

9.        GENERAL PROVISIONS. This Agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the laws of California. If, for any reason, any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, all other provisions of this Agreement shall be construed to remain fully valid, enforceable, and binding on the parties. This Agreement shall be construed and governed in accordance with laws of the State of California. The terms and conditions contained herein shall expressly survive any termination of this Agreement. No oral representations, statements or inducements have been made to me to cause me to enter into this Agreement. Any modification to this Agreement must be in writing and signed by the Company. If any legal action (including any arbitration) is brought by any party to this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to reasonable attorney's fees and costs.

I have read and understand this Agreement and understand it is a release of all claims for injuries and damages, whatsoever, and that it contains other provisions that are binding on me and my Successors.

I voluntarily sign my name evidencing acceptance of this Agreement. If under 18 years of age, signature of parent or guardian is also required.


Facility Orientation

By entering the bouldering area, weight room, cardio area, classroom, yoga studio, or other activity areas at Bridges Rock Gym, all new participants certify that they have either read, or had read to them the following:

  • It is your responsibility alone to assess your ability to participate in climbing, bouldering, and other activities offered at Bridges Rock Gym.
  • Bridges Rock Gym staff is available upon request to assist you in assessing your own ability to participate in climbing, bouldering, or other activities offered at Bridges Rock Gym.
  • Consult your physician if you have any doubt as to your ability to climb, boulder, or engage in other activities at Bridges Rock Gym.

I have read and understand this information.

I Agree

Inherent Risk of Injury in All Activities in This Facility

Climbing, bouldering, and other activities offered at Bridges Rock Gym are fun, but they are also inherently dangerous. These dangers include, but may not be limited to the following:

  • Impact by falling climbers
  • Falling on other people
  • Breaking and spinning of climbing holds, resulting in ground fall
  • Ground fall (bouldering falls always result in impact with the ground)
  • Impact with other climbing holds and/or climbing terrain during a fall
  • Impact with any person or object in motion
  • Impact with a stationary object
  • Equipment failure
  • Other dangers may include:
  • Inconsistencies in landing surface (i.e. fabric and foam padding)
  • Unauthorized hard objects on landing surface, such as:
  • Cleaning brushes, water bottles, etc.

I have read and understand this information.

I Agree

Bouldering Instructions

  • Bouldering routes are called "problems". Problems are designated as follows:
  • Problems consist of a set of matching, colored holds. Follow the climbing holds of the same color to complete a set problem.
  • Starting hold is labeled with a colored start tag. Some problems will have two starting holds, in which case the second start will have an additional “2nd Hand Start” tag.
  • Most boulder problems will have the final hold labeled with a colored “Top” tag, indicating that controlling the “Top” hold or holds means that you have successfully completed the problem.
  • Some boulder problems will “top out,” meaning that you successfully complete the problem by climbing all the way up and over the wall, ending up “on top” of the boulder. These problems will not have a colored “Top” tag.
  • In either case, use gray “downclimb jugs” to climb down the boulder, and never climb up before identifying how to get down.
  • We offer a range of boulder problems, from easy beginner ladders to challenging expert-level test pieces. We use a colored Circuit Grading System to identify the difficulty of each route, as follows
  • Green Circuit: VB-V2
  • Blue Circuit: V1-V3
  • Yellow Circuit: V2-V4
  • Pink Circuit: V3-V5
  • Orange Circuit: V4-V6
  • Red Circuit: V5-V7
  • Purple Circuit: V6-V8
  • Black Circuit: V7+
  • The higher the V-Grade, the harder the boulder. New climbers should begin on problems labeled with Green Circuit tags before moving on.
  • Falling techniques may reduce, but will not eliminate, your risk of injury.
  • Generally, you should strive to land on both feet, with knees bent, before rolling backwards onto your butt, then your back. Crossing your arms across your chest and tucking your chin are also helpful techniques.
  • Climb horizontally, or traverse, low to the ground if you are not competent in and familiar with falling techniques which may reduce the risk of injury. Traversing low does not eliminate the risk of injury.
  • Practice falling from less than 1 foot from the landing surface BEFORE attempting to climb higher.
  • Do NOT attempt to stop a fall suddenly with locked knees.
  • Do NOT attempt to stop a fall suddenly with an extended arm.
  • DO "Roll it out." The longer you take to come to a complete stop, the easier a fall is on your body
  • Be aware of others around you when falling to avoid impact with other persons.
  • Bridges Rock Gym staff is available upon request to demonstrate a short fall for participants who are not familiar with falling techniques which may reduce the risk of injury.
  • Bridges Rock Gym Staff is not permitted to demonstrate falling from greater than 1 foot from the landing surface.
  • Report any injury, activity, or situation that may increase the risk of injury to Bridges Rock Gym staff immediately.
  • All participants are required to read and follow the rules of the facility.

I have read and understand this information.

I Agree

Additional Instructions

  • Each Activity Area has posted rules. By entering each Activity Area, you agree to follow the posted rules in that area.
  • Please ask our staff for assistance if you have any questions about activities we offer.

We frequently offer Climbing, Yoga, and Fitness classes, which may help advance your practice. Please see our schedule for details.

I have read and understand this information.

I Agree

Know Your Abilities

By entering the bouldering area, weight room, cardio area, classroom, yoga studio, or other activity areas at Bridges Rock Gym, you acknowledge the risks inherent in entering and participating in activities in these areas. You also assume personal responsibility to assess and know your own abilities, and to refrain from exceeding those abilities in order to reduce the risk of harm to yourself or others.

Know your abilities and stay within them to reduce the risk of injury.
