I coil the halyard in a figure 8 leaving about 2' at the end. I take the coil and roll it around the left over line near the top of the coil, toward the mast. When there's about 8" left I pull it up through the top coil, forming a loop, and hang the halyard from a cleat. The nice thing about coiling a line like this is that you can grab the coil, lift it off the cleat, yank it downward and it will instantly uncoil.
