Usually you would have a pole topping lift and a downhaul (foreguy). They should attach to bridles that connect to each end of the pole and which are joined in the middle with a ring or loop where you attach the topping lift and down haul. You wouldn't necessarily need these for an asym, but they do help to contain/stabilize/manage the pole. Ease the downhaul, then lift the butt end of the pole.
Sometimes it is easier to lead these lines aft to a common rope clutch where you can manipulate them simultaneously.
