That particular one does better in cooler climates. It is also the first palm I ever climbed! I remember that it was this enough that I had to be careful how I shifted my weight up top!
Here's a pic from a SUPER talk one I climbed a couple years ago. In LA this species doesn't often go over 15 or 20 feet. This one was almost 30.
I'm no palm expert, though. I've flipped through some palm id books and I'm not sure i'd ever be able to keep them all straight. Every palm has 20 others that look almost just like it.
