Exshaw mountain is a low hill above the town of Exshaw, that doesn't quite break treeline.
We bushwhacked straight up to the top of the mountain, then continued along the ridgeline to the second bump.

We headed straight up the hillside to the summit of Exshaw Mountain in the trees.
We continued along the ridgeline to the second bump, but didn't continue further, finding it difficult bushwhacking through the trees.
Rather than reascend Exshaw Mountain on the way back, we continued down and returned along Exshaw Creek.
