If you're at all interested in climbing, you have to deep water solo with Spidermonkey Climbing. Very knowledgeable guide with reliable gear. Safety focused, and fantastic customer service. May be the highlight of the entire trip. Hard to beat free soloing 20 meters and peeling off into the water at the top. So much fun.

Took my daughter climbing here. Was a little worried that she was too young (she's 10 years old) but she did better than I did! It was enough adventure for us both! Great safety procedures, we were always well cared for and fabulous instruction. Thanks!

I had learned after going through some hoops to find the right Spider Monkey that there is a look a like company that has taken on the good name that Book has created and is trying to capitalize on the Climbing Guide business. I'm a decently experienced climber who climbs in Cali and I found that Book was very on... More

My instructor, Book, was really helpful and motivational as I really struggled doing it. It was a one-on-one session as nobody else had booked onto it meaning I could take it as quickly or as slowly as I liked. He was a wonderful guy! Eventually, despite all his motivational talk, I did give up anyway. I'd tried it, done two... More

I was looking forward to climb on Koh Phi Phi but this shop managed to waste three of my days on the island including enormous disappointment and no climbing after all- since you really should choose your climbing company wisely I chose spider monkey climbing- however on the first visit I forgot my passport which is needed for the insurance...

a bit scary, but mostly just great fun, and more active than suntanning. recommended! dont try to climb alone on phi phi : only some of the routes are equipped with titanium bolts. the other, old style bolts can and do break off !

Did the half day trip with Book, who was fantastic. He is patient, encouraging, fun, and is particularly concerned with safety. He also did a great job catering to all ability levels in the group. The routes along Tonsai wall provide stunning views of the island- the viewpoint without the crowds! If you are looking for more than a Spring... More

I spend 2 times half a day climbing with Book (the owner of the office) from Spider Monkey. Continued with some lead-climbing that I already learned elsewhere in Thailand (with King Climbers in Railey, also great instructors) and happy that I also learned some new things. He asked questions one forehand to get an estimation of my level and to... More

I booked a half day climb with spider monkey, as a complete beginner. I was 'lucky' enough to be the only person climbing so had Book to myself. I say 'lucky' as by the end if it I was exhausted- but we did all the climbs. Book is so patient and when I was ready to give up he kept... More

My first time rock climbing and i really liked it. They instructed you well and it was a very good experience. If your going rock climbing on Phi phi you should defiantly use Spidermonkey!
