ehhh... this picture shows which route you should ...
Don't bother, at least until you have climbed a few hundred other routes at Rumney. It's finer points include an interesting low angle start, exactly 2 cool hard moves and it's very safe (if a little over bolted).
The down sides include gross, wet, dirty, sharp rock and an overwhelmingly inconsistent difficulty.
If you do get on it, look for the funky anchor (bolts not parallel) in the middle of the lower left (filthy) part of Prudential. Climb the pretty interesting low angle start past 4 bolts at which point you will be looking up at a really steep wall about 10 feet high. Side pull Left crimp right and hit the sharp lip. Traverse jugs right to clip the strange anchor.
In the middle of the lower left wall look for a low angle start to a steep wall bolts heading right to an off kilter anchor.
7 bolts to lower off. I clipped 5 and felt very safe.
