White Cougar working out on Buddhist Palm.

Description 

Very hard moves off of decent cobbles, bad slopers, and small pockets.
Follows the blunt arete in the middle of the wall, ending just left of the obvious roof.
Very proud and unrelenting.

Location 

Start on an obvious jug at the bottom of the blunt arete. Make a lot of hard moves.

Protection 

Bolts with chain draws.

Redpointed last weekend by Elijah Ball. Grade bumped to 14a. Probably conservative as it's been changing regularly over the years and began at 13d 20 years ago.

Congrats, Slim!
