You don't need 2:1, but if the pig is on the line, you can't load the rope through a hauling device or pulley until the weight is off of the rope. So it might be useful to use a Zed-cord type hauling system (ie Chongo/PTPP/Hudon's style 2:1) that does not use the climbing rope in the hauling system. You could do this without the 2:1 and get enough slack in the rope to load a pulley/trax.

Or am I missing something?
