I also think this is to go aloft unaided. I've built one for every sailboat I've owned. A good bosun's chair, a couple of double blocks and around 5x your mast height and you are good to go. On a trans Atlantic crossing had to use one in 40 knots, and I survived, though a bit bruised.
Personally, I wouldn't trust a cam/jam cleat with my life, so I use the knot invented for exactly that rig.
