    Good weather: Above the ridgeline, for maximum space.

    Bad/cold weather: Under the ridgeline, for maximum protection and heat retention.

    In rainy/wet weather I hang my tarp under the ridge line so that there is one less place for water to run in. In really strong wind I hang it over the RL to provide more support for the tarp.

    That's my setup as well, for the same reason.

    Has anyone had any problems with abrasion on the tarp from the ridgeline? Thats one of my biggest concerns with putting the tarp over the RL

    So far I have just tied the tarp without a ridgeline. Haven't seen much wind or weather so it's worked out well. I'll have to try the other options out.

    Past few outings I have just tied the ends to the trees, no continuous ridgeline like mountaingoat.

    In snow I hang the tarp over the ridgeline for support.
