Ascent Trip ReportWe had a group of 9 Mountaineers. We started at Chinook Pass and took the PCT past Sheep Lake and up to Sourdough Gap. We continued on the PCT directly under Three Way Peak. About a 1/4 mile past the peak is the low point of the ridge and we ascended up the hill to that low point. Going up, we took a gully up the right side to the low point, but we had to scramble around a large rock outcropping using veggie belays on the north side of the ridge. Some our group was able to go around the left side of the rock. We then scrambled a fairly steep chute but once past the chute, it was a pretty easy ascent to the top. The top has a little exposure, but nothing too crazy. The summit itself is small, but right below the summit there was a small opening where we could enjoy our lunch. We came down the same way except that we were able to find a gully prior to the one we came up so on hindsight, we could have come up the left side of the ridge and avoided the rock outcropping. Then it was an easy hike back to Chinook Pass. A couple of us decided to ascend Yakima Peak that afternoon and that trip report and GPS track is on listed on this website as well under 8/12/19.
