It's Hamer Time

Edward Hamer is 16 years old and started climbing four years ago. He is amassing quite a ticklist during his school holidays, with a very productive trip to North Wales late last year (UKC News).

He has just had another week off school and ticked the following in a brief 4 day blitz:

Rain Dogs (F8a) at Malham, The Sissy (F8a) and The Press Low Right (V11), Tsunami (V11). The Press (V8+) all at Rubicon and Ben's Roof (V10) and The Pocket (V9) at Raven Tor.

Edward is hoping to compete in five international competitions with the British team this year.

It does make me laugh, when you are young you can still think "im gona be that good when im older", then you realise that actually all the guys who are tearing it up are now your age or younger.....

Brilliant, in such a short space of time. Did he start climbing in November or move to the UK in November?

I believe he moved to the UK in November - from where I am not too sure. It's a great effort. Go Ed! Jack
