I assume this was your top-rope anchor since no draws are clipped below you. If this is the case then shame on the leader! It's considerably safer to rig the bottom carabiners with the gates facing away from each other. If they are facing the same way they can both be inadvertently opened and the rope can fall out. Also consider clipping directly to the bolts to take the metal links out of the equation. I have two shoulder length slings with old-ish carabiners that I like to use for anchors. That way I don't wear out the nice draws top roping. Check out The Mountaineers Freedom of the Hills for more information about building bomber anchors and everything climbing related. Be safe out there.

I agree with you both entirely. Another thing to consider is using LOCKING biners for the top rope. This looks scary. I don't recommend it.
