The one connected to your foot should ultimately be connected to your harness too, if that wasn't already obvious.

Beyond that, a Google search of "ascending rope" or similar terms will get you lots of posts, pages, and videos of exactly what you want to do. Simply wade through through the information until you find a technique that matches your desired gear and safety factor.

I forgot to mention that using a GRIGRI as part of your system should allow you an easy way to move down the rope as well as up it. My opinion is that a GRIGRI and a Prusick might be a good combination since you can relesase the friction knot while ascending. Releasing a tibloc would not be as easy. I have not tried this myself.
