We made an attempt at Mt. Holden's east ridge via a northern approach where we jumped into the forest at the junction of Hicks Creek FSR and the TCT. No trail or flagging. We turned-tail at a 2.5/3 meter high awkward step up in a narrow part of the ridge (red dot in first pic). Not something she would do, and not something I wanted to help her up (or down on return). Not a bushy route overall.
