Been a while since i've been there and not quite clear on your question, but here goes. Parks Vic placed some anchors along the top of the cliff to save trees etc being used. Treat them kinda like a double-bolted belay. Attach to both of them, get a central piece that is over the cliff edge and top-rope off that. They should be solid for many years to come. If you're talking about a double ring-bolt belay / bolt-plates+mallions at the top of a climb, dont top-rope off it. Its not automatically dangerous, but will wear out the bolts, so they'll need to be replaced much sooner, more damage to the rock. Place a quick-draw through both, put the rope through the draws and top-rope off that. When you're cleaning the climb, just place the rope through the rings when you're finished to be lowered off.
