Given how well known this peak is, it was surprising that I hadn't completed it before now. A failed attempt in 2014 (due to an uncooperative child) was probably a blessing given that the final climb to the peak is fairly challenging for smaller children -- no such issues this time though and the 3.5-year-old successfully climbed his second peak in recent weeks.
Note regarding environment: this is a very popular peak and walker erosion is very evident (really needs some concerted efforts to improve the normal route).
