There are plenty of websites that have the same story, most of them identical
word for word. You can find them pretty easily by googling "Bear Canyon Trail
Scoutmaster Rescue", but here's an example.
I don't take the lack of a second adult in the story to mean that there wasn't a
second adult present. The story is pretty brief in every account I've seen.

Subject: [Scouter_T] YPT in California
Please don't think that all Californians can be generalized as the poster below
stated. We follow the same rules and make the same best efforts as anyone else
in the country in ensuring that all YPT requirements are followed. I find the
posting below an unkind generalization of California scouters and not a good
example of living the Scout Law.
Perhaps posting the actual article or a link would allow other scouters,
including myself to learn more. If something was done wrong, then action should
certainly be taken.
