In consideration of the services of Alpine Ascents International, 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 "AAI"), I hereby agree to release, indemnify, and discharge AAI, on behalf of myself, my spouse, my children, my parents, my heirs, assigns, personal representative and estate as follows:

1. I acknowledge that rock climbing, mountaineering, and trekking 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: loss or damage to equipment being used; being lost or separated from their guides or companions; the hazards of walking on uneven terrain and slips and falls; being struck by rock fall, icefall or other objects dislodged or thrown from above; the use of climbing ropes and equipment; rope burns; pinches, scrapes, twists and jolts that could result in scratches, bruises, sprains, lacerations, fractures, concussions, or even more severe life threatening hazards; the forces of nature, including lightning, weather changes and avalanche; weather and altitude can be extreme and can change rapidly without warning; the risks of falling off the rock or mountain; the risk of altitude and cold including hypothermia, frostbite, acute mountain sickness, cerebral and pulmonary edema; and exposure to potentially dangerous wild animals, insect bites, and hazardous plant life; travel in remote areas with poor or no access to emergency and/or medical services; my own physical condition, and the physical exertion associated with this activity.

When the service is in a foreign country the risks additionally include: the countries own laws and standards of acceptable conduct; food and water related illnesses; foreign political, legal, social, transportation, health, and economic conditions; different standards of design, safety, and maintenance of buildings, public places, and conveyances; local & medical facilities and providers; weather conditions; criminal activity, environmental hazards; standards of living and health standards that are not equivalent to life in the United States.

Furthermore, AAI 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 might misjudge whether the terrain is safe for travel or where or when an avalanche may occur. 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 AAI 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 AAI's equipment or facilities, including any such claims which allege negligent acts or omissions of AAI.
4. Should AAI 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 AAI, I agree to do so solely in the state of Washington, and I further agree that the substantive law of that state 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 portions 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 AAI on the basis of any claim from which I have released them herein.

Check I have had sufficient opportunity to read this entire document. I have read and understood it, and I agree to be bound by its terms.

In consideration of the services of Alpine Ascents International their officers, agents, employees, and stockholders, and all other persons
or entities associated with those businesses (hereinafter collectively referred to as “AAI”) I agree as follows:

Although AAI has taken reasonable steps to provide me with appropriate equipment and skilled guides so I can enjoy an activity for which I
may not be skilled, AAI has informed me this activity is not without risk. Certain risks are inherent in each activity and cannot be eliminated
without destroying the unique character of the activity. These inherent risks are some of the same elements that contribute to the unique
character of this activity and can be the cause of loss or damage to my equipment, or accidental injury, illness, or in extreme cases,
permanent trauma or death. AAI does not want to frighten me or reduce my enthusiasm for this activity, but believes it is important for me to
know in advance what to expect and to be informed of the inherent risks. The following describes some, but not all, of those risks:

The following describes some, but not all, of those risks: 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, cerebral and pulmonary edema; my own physical condition, and
the physical exertion associated with this activity.

I am aware that mountaineering, hiking, climbing, and camping entails risks of injury or death to any participant. I understand the description
of these inherent risks is not complete and that other unknown or unanticipated inherent risks may result in injury or death. I agree to assume
and accept full responsibility for the inherent risks identified herein and those inherent risks not specifically identified. My participation in this
activity is purely voluntary, no one is forcing me to participate, and I elect to participate in spite of and with full knowledge of the inherent risks.

I acknowledge that engaging in this activity may require a degree of skill and knowledge different than other activities and that I have
responsibilities as a participant. I acknowledge that the staff of AAI has been available to more fully explain to me the nature and physical
demands of this activity and the inherent risks, hazards, and dangers associated with this activity.

I certify that I am fully capable of participating in this activity. Therefore, I assume and accept full responsibility for myself, including all minor
children in my care, custody, and control, for bodily injury, death or loss of personal property and expenses as a result of those inherent risks
and dangers identified herein and those inherent risks and dangers not specifically identified, and as a result of my negligence in participating
in this activity.

I have carefully read, clearly understood and accepted the terms and conditions stated herein and acknowledge that this agreement shall be
effective and binding upon myself, my heirs, assigns, personal representative and estate and for all members of my family, including
