Assumption of Risks, release of liability, waiver of claims and indemnity
please read carefully before signing
I have asked to rent the equipment listed on this form from Twin Cities Rock and Ice LLC, and accept full financial responsibility for the proper use, care, treatment, and return of this equipment. The equipment dealt with in this contract is to be used only by the person whose signature appears on this form and I agree to reimburse and hold harmless Twin Cities Rock and Ice LLC for any loss or damage when used by another person not specially authorized on this form.
I accept for use AS IS the equipment listed on this form, and accept full financial responsibility for the care of the equipment while it is in my possession. I will be responsible for the replacement at full value of any equipment rented under this form, but not returned to the rental facility within 10 (TEN) days of the agreed upon return date. Rentals returned late will be assessed the additional date rate for each day late. Expense incurred under this policy will be charged to my credit card on file with Twin Cites Rock and Ice LLC.
I agree to reimburse and hold harmless Twin Cities Rock and Ice LLC for loss or damage of any kind to the equipment, other than reasonable wear and tear.
In asking to rent the equipment, I understand that the equipment can be used in activities, including but not limited to rock climbing, aid climbing, bouldering, ice climbing, mixed climbing, mountaineering, alpine climbing and other sports (collectively “RECREATIONAL CLIMBING SPORTS”), all of which I understand are potentially DANGEROUS and HAZARDOUS activities. I understand that the use of the equipment and all of these activities involve inherent risks, dangers, and rigors, associated with outdoor activities, which include the risk of BODILY INJURY AND DEATH.
I understand that a helmet designed for RECREATIONAL CLIMBING SPORTS use will help reduce the risk of some types of injuries to the user. I recognize that serious injury or death can result from both low and high energy impacts, even when a helmet is worn.
I AGREE TO RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS Twin Cities Rock and Ice LLC, its employees, owners, affiliates, agents, officers, directors, and the equipment manufacturers and distributors and their successors in interest (collectively “PROVIDERS”), from all liability for injury, death, property loss, and damage which results from the equipment user’s participation in the RECREATIONAL CLIMBING SPORTS and other mountaineering and outdoor activities for which the equipment is provided, or which is related in any way to the use of this equipment, including all liability which results from the NEGLIGENCE of PROVIDERS, or any other person or cause. I further agree to defend and indemnify PROVIDERS for any loss or damage, including any that results from claims or lawsuits for PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH, AND PROPERTY LOSS AND DAMAGED related in any way to the use of this equipment.
I have carefully read this agreement and release of liability and fully understand its contents. I am aware that this is a release of liability and a contract between myself and Twin Cities Rock and Ice and I sign it of my own free will.
This agreement is governed by the applicable law of Minnesota. If any provision of this agreement is determined to be unenforceable, all other provisions shall be given full force and effect.
I, THE UNDERSIGNED, HAVE CAREFULLY READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS EQUIPMENT RENTAL & LIABILITY RELEASE AGREEMENT. I am aware that I am releasing certain legal rights that I otherwise may have and I enter into this agreement on behalf of myself and/or my minor children of my own free will. My signature indicates that I have read and understood the entire agreement and agree that it is binding on me and my heirs, assigns, legal guardians, and personal representatives.
