Hi Camella, The simple answer is when the weight of your bag becomes too much for you to climb with. Haul bags are usually only used on multi-day rock climbs where the food, water and sleeping apparatus, along with all your climbing gear accumulates to more than you could feasibly climb with. Sometimes on difficult multi pitches routes, where you wont be bringing sleeping equipment etc., you may also want to take a haul bag so that you can climb more naturally. Hope that helps, Dave
