Last few times I was in it it was OK. April was the last one.
BTW - you can easily (and best) skip the P1 belay anyway and just chug on through as a single 60M pitch.

Was fine a couple weeks ago. Only bird poop was in its classic location in the jug above the first p belay... Brandon Groza

If I remember correctly, a 60m will make it to the tree if your belayer starts simulclimbing the first 20 feet or so. Rope drag is a bee-yotch if you climb it straight through though (ask me how I know!). Long runners in the roof helped a little bit.
70m rope should make it with no issues. Rap into darkness till dawn corner avoids dragging a second rope to rappel off, or finish on upper green spur to the walk off or dirty deed raps.

It is more than possible to climb through without drag. It requires sling work, but it can be done. A 70M is a good suggestion if you want to belay from the tree. Tony B
