The Cairngorm 4000s Challenge is a tough but classic challenge of Scotland. The Cairngorm National Park is the largest national park in the UK and it’s home to this magnificent challenge. The aim of the Cairngorm 4000s is to climb all the mountains in that region that are above 4000 ft in 24 hours. The mountains in the Cairngorm 4000s are:
- Cairn Gorm – 1245m
- Ben Macdui – 1309m
- Cairn Toul – 1291m
- Sgor an Lochan Uaine – 1258m
- Braeriach – 1296m
The route is around 22 miles long with 2400 metres of height gain. The scenery is spectacular and the terrain is challenging. The challenge can be completed in 24 hours or it can be split with a wild camp – should the group require this.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY
What an epic day. Dave gave us an amazing day on Wintours leap. We covered more than I could have hoped. Dave understood exactly what our objectives of the day were, excellent value for money. Dave was the most professional, and clearly knew his stuff.
Dave and his team hosted Noah’s Ark Charity Dangle event Sunday 16th October 2016 from Newport Transporter Bridge and we couldn’t have picked a better team of instructors to help us..
All of the guides were extremely supportive and had the groups best interest at the forefront of everything we did, they were also very knowledgeable about the mountains and what lay ahead of us. This is the first time we have used Dave but definitely not the last!
Dave and Robyn guided a group of us to four 4000+m peaks in the Atlas Mountains. They were always full of energy and continually kept the team motivated. You were never in doubt that they were fully prepared for all eventualities. On top of this, they were always teaching us important mountain skills, with demonstrations and giving everyone the chance to practice these skills in a safe and fun but relevant environment. I also thought they were excellent at tailoring the experience to different peoples wants and needs. Without a doubt my favourite adventure holiday of the year.
Highly recommended 🙂 Dave was a great guide, super fun and a good photographer too, capturing all the best bits of our expedition.
The best rock climbing instruction I’ve ever had. Extremely clear and engaging.
I just wanted to add that the quality of instruction was actually more than excellent! I learned loads of things that were very empowering and challenging, while always feeling very safe and in a friendly atmosphere. I had a lot of fun and really enjoyed my day. Many thanks to Dave!
I will happily tell all my friends that it is one of the best things I have ever had the good fortune to do.
Dave, was excellent. He manages to combine an inspirational passion for climbing with very knowledgeable advice and instruction and an unerring eye for safety.
It has been an amazing experience. A gigantic sincere Thank you to Dave for his care, effort and lovely sense of humor! He made us really happy.
Just wanted to pass on my thanks for a fantastic abseiling service from you guys yesterday. The feedback from all was what a professional and warmhearted company you are and even the very fearful felt safe and cared for and thanked you for your patience and reassurance.
It would be an understatement to say the Abberley Hall Clock Tower Abseil event exceeded my expectations.
