Mark Cionek called at 2pm PST on July 3rd with the following dispatch:

Unfortunately, due to time constraints and the weather the group decision is to head down the mountain. The weather doesn't look like it will break any time soon, the winds and temperatures are too formidable to move up the mountain. They've tried more than once and haven't made much progress up the mountain at all. They will probably begin descending today.
