Todomi is on a distinguished road
Already some good suggestions, but just a reminder:

The height of the lifting point needs only be somewhat above the center-of-gravity of your mast (not the top of the mast). You can attach a line to a strong point near the base of the mast, then through a collar (perhaps a loop of the lifting line) at a point just above the mast's center of gravity. No need to attach at the top of the mast.

Good luck.
