I personally prefer to keep walking another 300m and ascend the eastern peak. The trail up this peak is slightly harder to spot but still pretty obvious (its about 50m past the fern filled creek). This first ascent will be slightly harder than the western peak but makes for an easier trip overall as you don't need to descend this way (smooth rocks vs regular trail on the west peak) or backtrack over the western peak again.

The descent and climb of the western peak is much easier this way, and although it is rockier I wouldn't call any part of this hike a scramble.

If you're just after the great views I would recommend just going up this way and returning the same way. The western summit offers little views.
