West Rib: gear cached near the base of the route

Con Severis called in with an update: the team put a cache of gear in as close to the base of the route as possible.  A low snow year has left the various icefalls in the Northeast Fork of the Kahiltna more devious than normal, so getting through them to gain access to the route will involve intricate routefinding; however this is not unexpected.  They continue to move forward with the expedition, and will keep calling with updates as they develop.
