MCSO Copter Rescues 24 off Mt Ord

Wonder if this was from another peak and not Mt Ord?

These pics do not look like Mt Ord.

This story says church group of 17 kids and 7 chaperones?

The photos I saw appeared to be in the Bushnell Tanks area of Sycamore Creek, and a quote in the article stated that they wanted to "climb up to the highway" but were unable to. So I think the media reports are a little bit short on details.

CAMRA has more details on their fb page - definitely wasn't 'off Mt Ord'. Sounds like the group did a couple of things wrong, like splitting the 24 into 4 chunks, which complicated the rescue.

After reading the CAMR account it almost sounds like > [ Sycamore Canyon - Bushnell to Round Valley ] From the CAMR Mission Report: "Yesterday morning two dozen members and leaders of a youth hiking group were attempting a day hike of a section of Sycamore Creek from Sunflower, AZ to the south."
