The re-opening of Phi Phi Islands as a major climbing destination has long been on the agenda for climbing schools and climbers in the ever growing climbers paradise at Railey Beach. Despite years of good intentions, nothing really happened at Phi Phi and rock climbing as an activity stood the risk of succumbing to the horrors of rusting bolts, overgrown trails, and monkey infested climbing areas. Bolts dating as far back as 1987 made climbing here virtually life threatening and something desperately had to be done to avoid loosing these stunning islands to the package tourist.
In February 2000, the two friends Suchard Sripoh and Soley Onbud - long time Railey Beach residents - brought their skills and drills to the islands and established Phi Phi Climbers. Once climbing gained a foothold, people soon realized the full potential of the area and materialized out of nowhere to help out or start their own business. To date 50 routes have been re-bolted or put up by Phi Phi Climbers with the helping hands of resident climbers or climbers passing through.
Safety has always been our premier priority. To date state of the art A4 stainless steel glue-in staples and Hilti C 100 or HY 150 glue have been used. However the sulfuric acid in the limestone can erode not only the bolts but also the glue. So from September 2001 forward, Phi Phi Climbers will use titanium bolts which withstand the acid and a glue shown in recent studies to be the best technology - Hilti Hit Re-500. This is not a cheap nor permanent solution, and we at Phi Phi Climbers gratefully accept and welcome all kinds of donations and assistance in this slow, everlasting process. . .
We wish to share Thai hospitality and philosophy with every customer:
What is the most important aspect of climbing?
Also the most important aspect of living,
A way of focusing your attention,
Without balance in your life nothing else will work.
