WRONG:

CLAMOR


RIGHT:

CLAMBER



To clamor for something is to loudly demand it. An enthusiastic audience may clamor for an encore; and an angry populace may clamor for a leader’s resignation.


As its spelling hints, “clamber” is related to “climb.” To clamber is to climb strenuously. You can clamber up the steep bank of a river, or up a tower.
