The views are fantastic, and climbing is always fun, But Spidermonkey didn't live up to its reviews.
The directions they provided us were wrong, which made us over 30 minutes late. No big deal. But the guide took the company's mistake out on us by acting rude, telling us "don't talk ok" when we asked a question, and generally giving us dirty looks.
When we got to the rock wall, I noticed that one of the climbing shoes I got from them had a hole in the toe (not ideal since you use mostly that part of the shoe while climbing). I asked the guide if there was another pair of shoes available. He curtly told me none were available and that I should have inspected them more closely back at the shop.
After climbing for an hour or so, they started treating us more normally and we got a few good climbs in.
The climbs were all easy (nothing over a 5.8), so not challenging if you have experience but good for beginners.
All in all, can't recommend this place. There's surely a more friendly company in ko phi phi (or better yet, go to Railay Beach, the climbing is way better and so were our guides!).
