Got some questions on this, for bringing up gear.

What size?

Whats better useing a smaller line with a hauline attached to the end so when you get to the anchors you pull up your haul line, or just using the haul line the whole time to tag with (actually half the pitch right)?

I'm like using a 60' 6 mil line. When the leader needs ore gear, you just let them bring up on the haul line. If they are farther up than half way, just attach the 6 mil to the end of the haul line and send it up. Obviously just use the 6 mil to retrieve the haul line. The added bonus is you can use the 6' mil as a lower out for the bags. You might want something a little beefier, say 7 or 8 mil.
