why won't my hamster climb?

i just got a new hamster and he won't climb the ramp in the cage that i got. His food is up the ramp. Is this because he is new to the cage or what? He is a chinese dwarf hamster by the way.

    take your hamster and put him up where the food is. he'll discover the food and then realize how to get down. once they learn the way down, they will know how to get up.

    Source(s): used this method with 6 hamsters. works every time.

    Well my hamster had that problem too.He isn't used to the new place.And also if your hamster will climb it I think you should put the food down.
