Pitching a Pyramid Shelter isn't difficult, even in the wind. In this video I illustrate how to pitch the Hyperlite Mountain Gear UltaMid 2, a very spacious two person shelter made from cuben fibre. Preparation is key - aligning the shelter in an even square, leaving a bit of slack on the guylines, and then inserting the pole. If you keep these things in mind, you can pitch the UltaMid in three minutes, even in strong winds or in the rain.
