The climb is so-so. The climb starts with an easier wide crack that gets thiner and harder. A good stance comes just before the overhanging jamming crux. This route is merit is in its proximity to GOOD routes like Die Heeda Rule (which is just 6-8 feet right of PTC). The area favorites Brother Jug and Tombstone are just down and right from there as well.
Prime Time Climb has a hard and definite crux that will work most people a little on their thin-off-size jamming. The actual difficulty is hand size dependent.
There are some fixed anchors to rap on Hawk Eagle, but if you go, take some long webbing and add a few or replace some.
A standard rack with set of cams does pretty nicely if you add one large piece for the bottom (which is not hard). Crux is more or less off-hand-sized.
