Instead of typing "cd ../../.." you can type ".. 3". For extremely lazy typists, you can add this alias:
alias ...=".. 2" ....=".. 3"

NB the .. function needs to be "source"d or included in your startup scripts, perhaps .bashrc.
There are 8 alternatives - vote for the best!
If you can do better, submit your command here.
