You could use a halyard that's already in place, instead of climbing the mast. Just make sure the top where it exits the mast is playing fair with what you are trying to do. Drop the halyard until it just touches the starboard side, then swing the halyard over and see if it "just touches" the port side.
(I see this "Listing To Starboard" thread isn't a political thread.)
