I carry an extra rope and tie it as high as I can between two available trees, and then hang the tarp over this rope. This works well as you can either divide the tarp evenly over the rope, or allow for extra on the windward side if needed. Then tie down the tarp all around (I bring old tent stakes along for this purpose) and it works great!
