Planet Telex FFA!!!

Julia Chen has continued her incredible form of late with a fast send of "Planet Telex" at Echo Valley in Topside. After trying the problem briefly over a year ago, she returned and dispatched it on her first attempt after working out the crux in three or four tries. The grade of the problem has been debated in recent years and it was decided to upgrade the line to 7B from the original sandbag of 7A. Many climbers still consider 7B a stiff grade for this Topside classic.
