In consideration of the services of Outdoor Outreach, their agents, owners, officers, volunteers, participants, employees,
and all other persons or entities acting in any capacity on their behalf (hereinafter collectively referred to as "OO"), I hereby
agree to release, indemnify, and discharge OO, on behalf of myself, my spouse, my children, my parents, my heirs, assigns,
personal representative and estate as follows:
1. I acknowledge that outdoor adventure based activities such as rock climbing, surfing, snorkeling, mountain
biking, skiing and snowboarding entails known and unanticipated risks that 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 and snowboarding-the hazards of walking on uneven terrain and slips and
falls; being struck by rockfall, icefall or other objects dislodged or thrown from above; the use of climbing ropes and
equipment; the forces of nature, including lightning, weather changes and avalanche; the risks of falling off the rock,
mountain or into a crevasse; the risks of exposure to insect bites; the risk of altitude and cold including hypothermia,
frostbite, acute mountain sickness; my own physical condition, and the physical exertion associated with this activity.
Mountain Biking-accidents involving other bicycles or vehicles; collision with fixed or movable objects; injuries or accidents
involving contact with the bicycle; falls from the bicycle; the negligence of other operators of motor vehicles or myself;
weather conditions; my own physical condition; the condition of roads, terrain, or highways and accidents connected with
their use; contact with animals or insects. Furthermore, OO employees have difficult jobs to perform. They seek safety, but
they are not infallible. They might be unaware of a participant's fitness or abilities. They might misjudge the weather or
other environmental conditions.
They may give incomplete 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 OO from any and
all claims, demands, or causes of action, which are in any way connected with my participation in this activity
or my use of OO's equipment or facilities, including any such claims which allege negligent acts or omissions
4. Should OO or anyone acting on their behalf, be required to incur attorney's fees and costs to enforce this
agreement, 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 myself. I further certify that I am
willing to assume the risk of any medical or physical condition I may have.
6. In the event that I file a lawsuit against OO, I agree to do so solely in the state of California, and I further
agree that the substantive law of California shall apply in that action without regard to the conflict of law
rules of that state. I agree that if any portion of this agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the
remaining document shall remain in full force and effect.
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 OO on the basis of any claim
from which I have released them herein.
I have had sufficient opportunity to read this entire document. I have read and understood it, and I agree to be bound by
