Glärnischhütte is a bit far off my route. I'm actually headed for Elm as I want to cross Richetlipass on my way to Braunwald. Maybe on the next section as I plan to wind around via Glattalpsee.
I did email Bockmattlihütte some weeks ago. No reply yet but your link had a different address so I'll try again. My information is that they are a weekends only operation. I'll be arriving there Friday August 3ist. I'm assuming the worst and hoping to find a bit of shelter to curl up in. Not used to roughing it in Switzerland. Be quite a change to get a bad nights sleep and have stream water and biscuit for breakfast.
I'll have to pay attention to things along the trail that might offer shelter. Bivouacs, bothies, karkas. Can't help thinking how soft I have become. Otzi would not be impressed.
