Do yourself a favor and don't use the tree that is right at the cliff edge as an anchor. If you build an anchor off the further back tree and extend the anchor with the climbing rope (see pic)you will be able to have a high master point right at your head. This enables you to see the climber and have a nice seat.

If you need another reason not to belay off this tree, just look at the mass of exposed roots in this photo. Jun 4, 2013
