Headchange4u, I liked your idea enough to buy 30' of Amsteel Blue. But instead of descending rings, I used caribiners tied into my ridgeline rather than onto the cinch cords of my hammock. That gives me handy hooks for my hammock, bug net, underquilt, pack, and other gear. I'm thinking now that I will add some smaller, non-loadbearing caribiners farther out on the ridge line to clip my tarp to. Everything is easily adjusted. Thanks for the great idea!
