    If you figure it out, let us know.
    or if you come up with a creative use for the anchor point inthe middle of the tarp on the ridge seam.

    I've used that middle tie-out and some shock cord to pull straight up for additional tautness...gotta have something conveniently right above you for it work though....

    That's actually not that bad of an idea. You could always have some shockcord with a loop in the end and pass it through a "ridge line" tied off higher than your others (maybe same height as your hammock webbing). Then you wouldn't be dependent on something being "above" you to tie off to.

    The middle tie out works well for a pull out on a ground setup like a half wedge. But to be fair, I never used it on mine while hanging.
