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!

It was my first rock climbing experience and I would definitely recommend spidermonkey. Three friends of mine and I did it together. The guide, named Book, is awesome. He helps and explains in a very good English where he can, is absolutely professional and very funny. By the way Koh Phi Phi has amazing rocks and if you climb up... More

We are a couple who booked, Book, the lead technical guide at Spider Monkey Climbing. I have a fair amount of experience having climbed a bit in Railay Beach including lead climbing and I have also done multi-pitch routes at high elevation. However, my girlfriend had never been rock climbing with gear (rope, harness, etc). Book was excellent in his... More
