Yes, It is possible. However, option 1, you would need to carry the child the entire way up and down or, option 2, you could ride one of the horses or donkey (cant remember which) the first half the way (hardest part).

I recommend you starting early in the morning to avoid the afternoon heat. I climbed it in 2 hours and that's with short rest along the way and a longer rest at the café at the mid-point.
