How to Hang a Tarp on a Ridgeline

Whether you are using a hammock, putting an extra cover over your tent, or putting a tarp up over a picnic table. Hanging a tarp on a ridgeline is a skill that will help you in many ways.

 

Securing a tarp to a ridgeline will let you put cover over any part of your campsite.  It’s a very useful skill to have.  You can even cover the picnic table in your backyard with one of these.

This video refers to a Prusik Hitch knot, which you can view here.  It also utilizes a ridgeline, and you can learn to secure one of those here.
