Slogen is arguably the finest summit in the Sunnmøre Alps and the view is impressive! From the fjord a triangular pyramid-like feature rises straight up. Patchellhytta cabin lies at the foot of Slogen and is popular day tour objective in itself, but it is also a good starting point for ascents of Slogen, as well as Brekketind (5,833 ft) and Smørskredstind (5,351 ft). There are several alternative routes to Patchellhytta, and onwards to Slogen, either from Øye, Engeset or Urke.
