Top-Roping access ...
The short access to the top of the cliffs is by two climbs rated 5.6 and 5.7 in the most recent print guidebook. There might or might not be an easier access far up toward the West which would go well above the top of the wall, and then you'd have to find your way back down and hope you could reach the top anchors for your desired climbing routes.
So if you're not feeling brave to solo 5.6 or 5.7 as your first climbing of the day, bring a selection of small-to-medium stoppers and cams up to 2 inches to do a trad lead of the 5.6 route. Not sure how easy to connect across the top of the cliff between top of the left side and the top anchors for the right side routes.
