About Me

My name is Kaj Hansen. I am a 14 year old climber for the Edgeworks Premier team and currently climb in
USAC Cat B. I was introduced to climbing at a birthday party at Pacific Edge Climbing Gym (considered
Chris Sharma’s home gym) in Santa Cruz, CA when I was 6 years old and have been passionate about it ever
Our family relocated to Louisville Colorado from California where I began making some serious progress
while climbing at The Spot in Boulder. I climbed at The Spot twice a week on their youth program and really
found my passion for bouldering and comp climbing. We moved from Colorado to Washington state where I
joined the Edgeworks Climbing Team.
This season I was honored to be selected for the Edgeworks Premier Team, and am it's youngest member.
The Premier team has a particularly rigorous schedule, three hours a day, three days a week. In addition to
this I climb outdoors as frequently as possible as I recognize this benefits my overall strength and fitness.
Some of my favorite places to climb outdoors are Index and Leavenworth in Washington state, Steamboat
Springs, Colorado and Moab, Utah.
