Head up a dihedral with a good number of well weathered vertical and horizontal flakes (5.6). Belay on a ledge at a bolted anchor shared with "Africa Flake" or pass the belay and continue up the corner with great hand jams and stemming. When you reach a slanted blocky ledge, (belay here with gear if you skipped the bolted belay) climb the crack system to your left (5.9). Belay at a bolted anchor. There is supposed to be a third 5.7 pitch but I have yet to do it.
Two rappels with a single rope from the second anchor.
Start in a left facing dihedral just after the trail starts to head uphill. You should be able to see the "Africa Flake" (10a) from the ground. Duct Taped Plum heads up the corner to it's right.
Standard Rack. Bolted anchors.

Added quick links to the second pitch bolt anchor shared with Africa Flake, so now need to leave gear or trust the faded slings. If I had mussy hooks I would have thrown those on.
