    continuous ridgeline

    I will be getting a superdly and was going to try a CRL.

    Never having any experience with hammocks I just wanted to make sure I was on the right track.



    I was planning on doing each end with a tarp fly as pictured, suspending my tarp under the ridgeline. Any pointers? Am I totally off? All I have is some zing it, tarp flyz and utility haooks to play with until my gear shows up, haha.

    it looks like you are right on the money.
    you can use that setup for CRL over or CRL under.
    good job!

    whoopies will be fun to make and well worth your time.
    you can also make some zing-it soft shackles to prussic onto your CRL to replace
    your s-biners and cont loop prussic if you're so inclined.

    I'm using Cam Locks - simple/cheap/easy to use.

    Or add cont loops to your tarp and then hook them to cont loops that have a(here's the fun part, you get to buy more Dutch Ware!) Dutch Hook on them that are prussiced to the ridge line.
