Though the second (crux) pitch is a little scary, it's seems easy for the grade. The first pitch is one of the best 5.8 slab pitches in the state... and only a small percentage of Carolina climbers even know it exists.

Great edges through the first pitch! A tad spacious between gear, unless you are used to style 'round here, use a pink or red tri-cam to protect the white crescent and prevent excessive run out. The second pitch is super fun with a tricky move that probably validates the (+) rating. Besides, .10a is easier than .9+ anyway.
Second pitch is interesting. Climbed more left to right than up, looking for gear, but found some good stuff to protect the climb. Would repeat the matra- second pitch is easy for the grade, but interesting none the less.
