Short Cliff w/ Three Cracks Rock Climbing

This crag is probably best described by its name, except that there appears to be 4 cracks. Too much THC?

This is a somewhat indistinct line at first, but it is actually not hard to follow. The climbing is on a mix of jugs sidepulls and slopers, and the gear is reasonably plentiful in the carious features found along the way until after the ledge.Toward the right end of that cliff there is a short, right-leaning, right-facing dihedral.
