With clear weather this weekend, this should be fun. This overnight hike will take us over 3 passes, 2 peaks (weather permitting), Rongergrat, 1 Stausee, and 1 glacial lake. The modest price - some technical difficulty. The hike is rated T4. This means you need to be sure footed, comfortable with heights and on cliffs, and happy to scramble and climb with your hands.
The plan would be to hike from Gotthardpass, over Passo di Lucendro (2532m), Piz Lucendro (2963m), Passo di Cavanna (2613m), over Rongergrat, to the Rottodohütte (2571m). On day 2, it would be a relatively simple descent over Rottälligrat. The hike can be done in reverse order, and may be an option based on weather.
