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 top of safety. He quizzed me and did all of the normal safety checks I would do in regards to double backing your harness, tying all the right knots, being aware of which anchors are sort of shady vs. which ones are bomber. On top of safety, Book is a down to earth guy who is really cool to hangout with. After an awesome day with him, he gave us some really good tips on where we could go for some deep water soloing. Again, make sure you find Book's shop which requires you to take a right after passing the big boat restaurant. Please beware of the copy cat company for the following reasons:
- They are inexperienced
- They are inattentive: Smoking while belaying you, etc.
Notice, that all of the bad comments are because of this look-alike company. Enjoy Koh Phi Phi!
