Gear Rental Policy
The following "no fault" policy is in effect: any user of the Alpine Club's equipment is not liable for the equipment should the equipment break or be lost under normal circumstances. However, if the club's leaders determine there was improper usage, or gross and intentional negligence, the borrower of the equipment may be asked to pay between 25% and 75% of the current retail value (the exact amount at the club leader's discretion).
It is also the policy of the club to loan gear to any member of the Caltech community, specifically without regard to their qualifications for using the gear. It is the users's responsibility to obtain proper training.
