You should be rapping single strand with a gri-gri. Other side of the rapp should be freehanging.

I've never done a wall, so haven't ever rapped with a haulbag, hence a newbie question: how do you rig the ropes for this system. Do you use a "biner block" type system, so you can pull one end, but rap on the other?

Exactly.
And by free hanging I don't mean let the free side blow away off in the wind where you can't get it. You should tend to it.
