Pitching a Zpacks Triplex for more headroom.

We did two more section hikes on the AT. Win got me to try an idea for more headroom (I used the bear bag cord as we had a bear box to put our food in).

Hiking in September
Only needs one pole a side

With two people one can use their hiking poles to pitch the tent and the other can pitch the sides up instead of down and out.

Better example of the side rig in progress with the dedicated loops.

The tent sides pitch to the pole. I now have two lightweight lengths of cord with the tent to pitch the pole to the stake in the ground.

A lot neater than using my bear bag cord and I have one for each side.

From the inside.

It adds a lot of room and more clearance to the sides of the tent.
