As a kid we lived in a two story house that had screens on the upper windows similar to these. I remember my father taking them down to clean occasionally and it was fairly simple and he did not have to climb all the way up. The upper frame member also had hooks, but they looked similar to this
With this arrangement, he used a fairly short ladder and holding the screen by the bottom, he could engage the hooks at the top and swing it down. The bottom then was fastened closed using one or two screen door hooks on the inside. I can’t tell from your pictures how the upper hooks on yours actually work. Maybe you can do the same. Of course, you will still need a ladder, but a 16 footer will probably do the job.

As mentioned above, putting the screens out through the upper windows and then engaging the hooks seems like a good solution, if possible.
