Good quality clean decent friction rock
Pitch 1- Start on overlaps shared with Yardarm and then head straight up at the bolt(25')(many people clip this for Yardarm), clip another bolt and then head up to a one bolt belay 5.10a 110'.
Pitch 2- Climb straight up past two bolts to 2nd belay of Yardarm 5.9 150'.
Finish on Yardarm

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.
