Hammock Tarp setting up Continuous ridgelinePosted by Claire Walters on Mar 24, 2013 in Hammock/Backpacking Tips | 0 comments
Looking for a easy fast way to set up the ridgeline for your hammock tarp?
Derek at TheUltimateHang has put together an illustration showing how he uses Dutchware hardware to create his tarp ridgeline. Derek made use of a Tarp Flyz & a Dutch Hook. The Dutch stingerz can be used in place of the tarp flyz. This makes it easy to align your tarp over the hammock before tying down the guylines.
Using the ridgeline over or under the tarp is usually a personal preference. In winter when expecting snow many will use the ridgeline under the tarp. Having a ridgeline under the tarp also gives you a place to hang a light or a few other smaller items.
In the video below Derek demonstrates how he sets up his hammock tarp.
