+1, I also find this the easiest way for me.

I have a summit goliath and I am 6'2 175lbs and have a prosthetic left leg and still use a climber,they are right you need to lift the stand as high as you can reach up and pull yourself up on the climber then lower the seat part down and start your climb

Thats the same trick I use. And I'm a huge guy.
Practice at home or in the nearby woods with all your thick hunting clothes on too. It makes a big difference on how well the stand fits around you and how graceful you can or cannot be, lol.
Sometimes I'll bag up my bibs and jacket and climb without them on. Then once I'm situated, I'll haul up the bag and bow/gun.

Certain trees are more awkward than others due to the shape of the trunk, etc.
