I'm guessing that this a a church that you need to reroof. I would suggest leaving it to a roofing contractor to figure out all of the details and accept responsibility for any on-the-job injuries that may occur. 60 feet up is no place for amatuers

Chad: I know Ellendale very well. Have done lots of work there. Your nearest rental is Weismantels in Aberdeen. 45 miles.
You are either doing a church or the grain elevator. The elevator is concrete. You may not know it, but one of the best roofers in the Dakota's is from that area, and subs for me. If you want e-mail me. You can rent a lift in Aberdeen but only goes up about 30 feet. Lots of roof jacks and muscle. At 60 feet, you really need a professional. If you or anyone else falls, how is your insurance. Think about this first.
