It would result, I think, in no good but in all probability would make matters worse.You are doing just right - climbing mountains. Go to Yosemite when you can, and go on with your life epxeriences. Nothing like going up canyons and mountains for troubles of all sizes.With all best wishes, I am,Faithfully your old friend, [JOHH MUIR]03826
