Although Moss is not know for making mountaineering tents you could not go wrong with the Stardome II if you are looking for a seriously stable alpine tent for two. Its low, sleek lines shed wind very well. My climbing partner and I are both over 6 foot and have spent many comfortable nights in the tent waiting out vicious storms however living space is moderate compared to some of the other tents out there.
This is a three pole tent with an extra pole for the large vestibule which is integrated in the fly. I have never seen the need to guy it out, it has an incredibly taut pitch. It is very water tight, however it turns into an oven in the summer if you have the fly on and ventilation could be improved upon. All in all this is a great buy that will stand up to just about anything that you can throw at it.
