Not as in santas rocking brother, but as in BFR.

I am taking the winter and finalizing some of my forms and such and I am wondering how many of you word your contracts to deal with the possibility of hitting ledge or boulders. I am not always so good with the words.

I don't really need to see anybody contract, just looking for a few Ideas on Phrasing.
Thanks in advance.
