Try to avoid snickering when you read this message...
Apparently Viagra counters the effects of altitude sickness.
I kid you not! I read it on the Internet!
This is relevant to PCT hikers, some of whom are forced to
leave or skip the trail in the Sierra due to altitude sickness. I,
myself, am susceptible to altitude sickness -- I can get altitude sick
just camping at Horseshoe Meadow, much less hiking over New Army Pass.
I usually use gram doses of Vitamin C, and I've read suggestions the
ginko helps. Sounds like a new pharmacological experiment is due...
"Helps with altitude sickness. Never hike alone."
