Camping in back country on steep slopes?
Spent close to a week this August with a tigoat vertex 5, borah bivy, EE revX 20* quilt, and a BA pad, spent most nights on opposite ridges of where I was trying to hunt and found because of the steep terrain that setting up the tigoat vertex 5 and getting the proper pitch was damn near impossible. Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this using a fixed pole? I'm contemplating dumping the vertex 5 altogether and using a ID Nestor Bivy, but before I pull the trigger I thought I'd ask here.
Anyone have any experience with this?
