Three Way Peak is located between Chinook Pass and Crystal Mountain ski area. 

We will approach it by following the PCT trail north from the parking area just east of Chinook Pass to just east of Three Way peak.  The final push to the top is fairly exposed, so you must be quite comfortable on steep rock.

After descending the Three Way summit , we will hike up to Silver King Peak, which is northwest along the ridge past Three Way.  Note that on Peak Bagger, the peak is called Crystal Mountain.

After Silver King, we will return more/less the same way, except we might short-cut via the basin west of Three-Way.  Upon returning to the cars, if people still have some energy, (and the views are nice), we will scramble up Yakima Peak, (which is literally right above the parking lot)
