To set a line in a tree normally a throw bag(small canvas bag filled with shot) is attached to a small diameter line that is designed for this and either thrown over a branch or a large slingshot is used called a bigshot that propels the throw bag up into the tree.Once a proper TIP(tie in point) is isolated the climb line is attached to the smaller throw line and advanced.Usually a cambium saver or friction saver is added at the tie in point to protect the tree from the rope.  Hope that helps a little.

Yep, the first part of the class was throwing the shot bag without a slingshot.
That was fun. Then we spent over an hour trying different riggings to try and lift large Harzers off the ground. That was not the first rig we tried. It was the first rig that worked. ;D
