brak is on a distinguished road
I use mastmate. To be safe, I wear a kind of a harness -climbers webbing around behind my back and around shoulders/under arms - then clip around the mast. I have two of these running the same way, so even when I go around spreaders, I have at least one clipped at all times.
This also lets me use both hands when I am standing on a ladder, even at the top of the mast - and even reach spreader ends if needed.
