As Owain said above, most people just make use with the gear they would have had for the canyon. Theyre all short(ish) pitches, so putting your rope through one biner straight into the bolt (all of them are rings or fixed hangers) will be fine.
In the case of butterbox 4 carabiners and one of your Prussics (used as a foothold near the top) will do you. There's 2 ring bolts at the top so a sling to equalise and a biner for a munter to belay is fine)

Arathusa you probably want a couple more biners and maybe 2 or 3 slings for trees, belaying with minter os fine here too. As Owain said the crux of arathusa (except getting lost on walk in and out, very veauge track) is a 8m overhanging hand over hand up a very slippery waterfall, pretty much 2 or 3 pull ups with not much for feet.
