Comment (automatic translation in english)

Today's excursion takes place in the Gotthard region. The goal is the summit of the Schwarzlochhorn, the horn of the black hole.
First we reach the Gotthard Pass, which is currently a major construction site due to the construction of the new wind farm. We are not the only ones who have had the idea to go walking today. The pass is already full of cars. Fortunately, our destination is not very busy.
We start to climb along the dirt road that leads to the Alpe di Fortünéi. When we reach Barch, we leave the road and start to climb along the grassy slopes of the Valle delle Rive. However, as we climb, the grass gives way to stones. We arrive at the Sunnig Lücke, after which we turn south and begin to climb up the stony slopes of the Schwarzlochhorn to the summit.
For the return leg, we decide to descend the south slope, which at first glance does not seem too difficult. On this side of the slope there are fewer stones, but the gradient, especially in the first section, is still quite steep and care must be taken not to slip.
Trying to avoid the boulders, we return to the Alpe di Fortünéi and from there, in a short time, to the Gotthard Pass.
If you need water, there are several streams on the way up to the Sunnig Lücke and more on the way down to the Alpe di Fortünéi near the 2304 m mark. Just be careful, however, that there are no cows grazing higher up.
