Stairs versus ladder, I reckon you are on the right idea Josh, I have worked in air traffic control towers and on RADAR systems, both involving equipment at height. The best way to get it up and down is a winch on a rail with a half door (Top half) that the rail protrudes through. To get gear in you open up the top door, push the winch out and drop a basket down, then winch the basket back up over the fixed bottom of the door and pull it back inside.

Any other way the temptation is going to be there to carry something heavy or awkward up the stairs or ladder.
