There are better ways to toughen up kids than put them at risk. My 14 year old is tough ( ask blue dog) but he didn't get that way by putting him at risk.
When I did seek the peak with him we did Huntington but I always had one eye on the weather. He fully understood if the weather was bad down we would go. Once I got to the fan and was committed to the climb I was not comfortable until I reached the top. I have hiked so often with my kids and their safety is ALWAYS number 1!!!!!!!!! YOU CAN NEVER LET YOUR GOALS OVER RIDE THE SAFETY OF THE CHILDREN.
