More Money 5.7
This climb is one of the most straightforward on College Rock, and makes a nice warm up. No tricks, just some steep face climbing on smallish-but-positive holds.
Start in the middle of the face and climb up easy hand and foot ledges trending rightward up the face, following the path defined by the various lips and small foot ledges, above the right-facing corner and roof. Reach the horizontal cracks, pull up, and slap the rounded top! If you can find a hold which will support pulling over the top out, everyone will be amazed.
For a more difficult variation, start under the roof in the right-facing corner. Climb up the corner and pass out from under the roof to the left, and onto the face. Continue up right to the finish.
The More Money line is just to the right of "Send Money" on the face to the right of the CR Chimney, halfway along the crag.
Two convenient trees on the ledge above the climb, within 6 -7 feet of the edge provide an easy top rope anchor solution. Is it leadable? Well yeah, in the same way "Send Money" is: commit to freesoloing the first 75% of the line up to the two horizontal cracks at the top. You go first, I'll watch.
