How do you haul a haul bag up a wall and tie it off when you get to the belay station? Do you pull it up before the second follows? What about rope managment? How do you keep your rope from getting tangled and do you us a static line?

Check out Dr. Piton's Index. There are sections in there about all sorts of stuff, including hauling.

This topic will probably get moved to the aid forum.

You typically haul while the second is cleaning. A static rope is more efficient than a dynamic, because you aren't wasting energy stretching the haul line that's between you and the pully/cam wall hauler setup. As you haul, you either stuff the rope into a rope bag, or flake it butterfly-style over a sling (stop every thirty feet, or so, to do this). You aren't going to tangle the rope going down to the Pig with the climbing rope, because they're both under tension. If you haul while the second cleans, he can kick the schnitt out of the Pig if it gets stuck under a roof.

Middendorf's book Big Walls co-authored with John Long is also a great source, that thing has been my aid bible. But I've also seem other people do the same things more efficently than how it was portrayed in the book, so it's all abut trying it (at a low level first off) to see what works best for you. I'm a newbie at this too :lol:
