Description

(Note: The route known as "The Premium" has been divided into two route submissions: The Half Premium and The Full Premium. The Half Premium ends at anchors on the midway ledge, and the Full Premium continues past those anchors to the top of the cliff.)

The Full Premium follows a towering inside corner up the center of the Prudential. Start with technical and thin stemming moves up a clean gray dihedral. These moves lead to rounded jugs and eventually the midway ledge. The Half Premium ends here.

Above the ledge, climb the orange dihedral by using powerful and technical moves. Once you top out the dihedral, continue up 20 more feet of slightly easier rock to the top of the cliff.

The Full Premium is one of the mega-lines of Rumney and should be in the same conversation as Predator, Beat Junkie, Urban, and Giant Man as one of the best pitches on the hillside. The upper dihedral is often wet; therefore, a tick of the Full Premium is an elusive one. Many who attest to having climbed "The Premium" have only done the first half.
