A collection of dubious top rope climbing anchors.

Another flying double anchor.
Single strand webbing, carabiner gate towards the rock, so it could be forced open, anchor angle of about 120 degrees to maximize force on all the points.
Another carabiner facing the rock.
Is 9MM anchor line safe? Yes. Is it smart? No. It will stretch twice as much as 10mm rope, cutting, abrading, and wearing out much faster. Here they had plenty of rope but came up about 6 inches short, even the clever rope condom won't prevent friction of the climbing rope.
