UCR Ridgeline Recipe

This UCR structural ridgeline will work for up to 12' hammocks.

Make the following marks on the first piece of line:

  • 1" taper
  • 4" to be buried
  • 4" for 2" loop
  • 4"-5" for the bury
  • 10' (will be buried in the 15" length on the other line)
  • 3" end (buried back on itself)
  • 1" taper

On another piece of line:

  • 1" taper
  • 4" to be buried
  • 4" for 2" loop
  • 1' spacer
  • 15" for 12" bury of the rope above
  • 1' spacer (going to be a prusik)
  • 3" end (buried back on itself)
  • 1" taper

Once completed I make marks at the following lengths:

  • 119.5" (for a 12' hammock)
  • 109.5" (for an 11' hammock)
  • 99.6" (for a 10' hammock)

On an 11' hammock there is about a foot of extra line.
