A collection of dubious top rope climbing anchors.

Couldn't find a smaller tree?
The black rope going to the 3" diameter tree at right is the only active anchor. That may be the good news since the webbing is about to add a few more feet of slack when it slips off its perch. Of course both anchors are 3 feet up in the air when they should be at the base of the trees.
Why tie the anchor 3 feet up half of the tree? The figure 8 follow through is a bad choice to secure the end on a tensionless anchor. Given the appearance of the double overhand, they didn't have confidence in their ability to tie it right.
