Climber and Diaries contributor Kelly Cordes is what you would call an early adopter. Kelly may live in a shack at 8,000 feet, but the guy is no cretin. He’s had an email account for four years now.

The guy’s approach to new technology is as cutting edge as his alpine endeavors, but even seasoned pros have the occasional misstep.

It’s certainly just as time consuming.
