The FAVCO can't climb down to its base as it can't be reached from the ground by a mobile crane. They'll lift a smaller crane up to remove the derrick crane when its done its work.
Here is my post from Dec 19th.. in the photos above this one you can see the derrick crane.

You were absolutely right! Looks like they might take down the large crane pretty soon since they worked the last few days to complete the derrick crane.
