The bosun's chair is the best option as it can easily be used anywhere. You can be hauled up by somebody else or you can haul yourself up with a 4 part tackle and an ascender.

I'm not a fan of stay set and stay set x for upwind halyards, but if you're running a light dacron main they'll probably work just fine. Here's a good chart for reference. I've used Endura braid, ultra-tech (technora), and VPC (economy jib sheets).
