Another option is to use a bucket truck (if the location is no nearby power lines, etc).

They can be rented very cheaply, and it eliminates all the need for the
derrick hardware.  Also eliminates the winch, which can be dangerous
(freewheeling risk and cable snapback risk)

I wasn't impressed with the safety of falling derrick when I tried it.
Bucket truck is my recommendation.
