In consideration of the services of the UW-La Crosse Climbing Wall, their agents, owners, officers, volunteers, participants, employees,
sponsors, and other persons or entities acting in any capacity on their behalf (hereinafter collectively referred to as "UWL.CW"), I hereby agree to
release and discharge the UWL.CW, on behalf of myself, my children, my parents, my heirs, assigns, personal representative and estate as
1. I acknowledge that climbing on a climbing wall entails known and unanticipated risks which could result in physical or
emotional injury, paralysis, death, or damage to myself, to property, or to third parties. I understand that such risks
simply cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity.
The risks include, among other things: climbing on, or falling off, loose and/or damaged artificial holds, the artificial climbing structures, falling
to the ground, on other users, or being fallen on by other users, abrasions from the walls, ropes, pads, or the floor, equipment failure, belay
failure, or climbing out of control or beyond ones personal limits, the negligence of other climbers, visitors, participants, or other persons who
may be present, or my own negligence.
Furthermore, UWL.CW employees have difficult jobs to perform. They seek safety, but they are not infallible. They might be ignorant of a
participant's fitness or abilities. Instructors may give inadequate warnings or instructions, and the equipment being used might malfunction.
2. I expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all of the risks existing in this activity. My participation in this
activity is purely voluntary, and I elect to participate in spite of the risks.
3. I hereby voluntarily release, forever discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless UWL.CW from any and all

equipment or facilities, including any such Claims which allege negligent acts or omissions of UWL.CW.
4. Should UWL.CW or anyone acting on their behalf, be required to incur attorney's fees and costs to enforce this agreements, I agree
to indemnify and hold them harmless for all such fees and costs.
5. I certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may cause or suffer while participating, or else I agree to
bear the costs of such injury or damage to myself. I further certify that I have no medical or physical conditions which could
interfere with my safety in this activity, or else I am willing to assume - and bear the costs of - all risks that may be created, directly
or indirectly, by any such condition.
By signing this document, I acknowledge that if anyone is hurt or property is damaged during my participation in this activity, I may be found by
a court of law to have waived my right to maintain a lawsuit against UWL.CW on the basis of any claim from which I have released them herein.
