How To: Make a lean-to in the wilderness

Make a lean-to in the wilderness

Sometimes you need a little shelter when you are hiking or camping. If it starts to rain, or you need a little shade from the sun, it will help you very much to build a lean to. In this tutorial, learn how to make a lean to if you are stuck in the wild.
Fashioning a lean-to is not as difficult as you may think. If a person has a tarp and rope, he can make a tent in a lean-to style with the tarp pointing downhill, so that water runs away from the sleeping area. Find out how to tie a tarp to a tree to make a tent with help from an Eagle Scout in this video on wilderness survival.
