2/3rds of the way southward along the crag, next to the "Exercise Left to the Reader" crack, climb the right-facing buttress, characterized by a triplet of jagged overhangs in a corner, with an awkward offwidth. One of the easist lines at College Rock, though the move to make the upper ledge is awkward and, if you're highballing the line, it'll make you concentrate. Free soloing, the top-out ( to the top ledge adjacent to the top of the "Steeple" requires one sorta-technical 5.5+/5.6-range move, and commitment. Don't wuss out, make the move...ta DAAAAHH! see that was easy, wasn't it? ;-)


This is the right-facing buttress just left of "Exercize Left to the Reader", and just behind the "Steeple".


Nice cracks all the way up take plenty of gear, though the route is so short you'll likely only place 3-4 pieces, total. For top rope, there are features from which a gear anchor could be built, or trees (back on the ledge over Send Money) can be slung above the top ledge.
