At the mast

when in a writing, a novel for example, says "at the mast" it means up on the mast (in upper part of it) or it means on the deck near the mast?

Then he took his place beside the Squallers at the mast, where he would help them navigate through the dark.

At the mast of each sled, flanked by heavily armed soldiers, stood two Grisha Etherealki, the Order of Summoners, in dark blue kefta.
