This is the very first climb I ever did at College Rock, in March of 2003, in my sneakers, so keep your sneakers (or hikers) on, and just do it, you know you want to. I routinely do this as my very last climb of the day for top access to retrieve my anchors. Free-up-and-downclimbing the chimney for top access is so much more "core" than simply scrambling up either end of the crag, don't you think?
A little less than halfway down the crag southward (just after the 5.11 roof face), is the first prominent right-facing buttress. behind this buttress is the College Rock Chimney, a sorta-fun highball in an offwidth, with a couple awkward moves adding a bit of low-grade spice.
Are you kidding? This is 5.0! What protection? DON'T JUMP OFF. Oh alright, set your anchor using features in the rock above the chimney. Some longish slings might be required.
