Pulling a new line from basement to second floor

Can anyone give me some advice on how to pull a new electrical line from the panel in the basement to the attic, for a bathroom on the second floor.

Best methods

1. Fish it down the walls.
2. Look for an HVAC chase.
3. Run a pipe on the outside of the house.
4. Hire an electrician and go fishing while he dittles around with the wires :)
