Shroud and stay tension when climbing the mast

I loosened my backstay and forestay (actually, I removed the forestay and replaced it with a halyard) before climbing the mast. I didn't loosen the cap shrouds or the inner shrouds.

It occurs to me that this might have been a good idea, and since I have to go up again next week to attach the new forestay, I thought I'd ask.

Should I loosen the shrouds in this situation? Why?

Boat is a Newport 30 mkii
