Did you mean this?

If you are comfortable in a chair or harness it is not hard to do from aloft. After loosening remove opposites in pairs for replacement. I watched a rigger (a pro admittedly) replace an entire rig on a Westsail 32 at the dock, including removing the spreaders for inspection, with a swaging machine on the dock. He had to answer my questions at the same time as well.
