Approach Strokin' the Bishop and Lopin' the Mule by climbing the obvious bolted access pitch on the left side of the wall at 5.9. Rapping from this pitch requires just a touch of downclimbing with a single 70m rope.
El Sendero del Vagabundo, Ripped Wall, Biaji's Boulevard, and Animal Party can more directly be approached by climbing an old overgrown, but short, pitch on the right side of the wall at 5.8.
Arguably the best option is to do the lefthand approach and use Strokin' the Bishop as a warmup. Then a quick belayed downclimb rightwards across the ledge system to the lower tier will provide access to all the other routes. At the end of the day, a short rap down the righthand approach pitch is an easy way back to the ground.
