I'd like to try this route, but I dislike the idea of trusting my life and my partner's life to a one-bolt belay station. There's just nothing redundant about that.

It seems like it would be safer to just combine pitches and simulclimb as necessary above the P1 belay bolt.

Is there any reason not to do this?

Jeff, It is possible to climb past the 3 bolts up and right to a double bolted belay 180ish feet. Then climb back left clipping a bolt and up to the Yardarm p2 anchors.
