>       This is NOT how a gin pole is configured.  

A gin pole is just a device to give an attachment opportunity high enough above 
already accomplished structure to allow fixing various lifting devices to 
control both vertical and horizontal forces on the next section for easy 
attachment. It doesn't imply any particular lifting arrangement, though some 
may be manufactured with a particular device integral.

Other than a single pulley, the top hook of a 4:1 block and tackle setup is 
another device that can be attached to the top of a gin pole. I've seen an 
electric winch fitted to a gin pole.
