successful tours per year
Here you finally find my success statstics. Numbers given are the numbers of tours that we actually started walking/climbing and what the reason was why we turned back. Usually, a success rate around 75% seems normal.
Note: From 2002 on, the amount of ordinary mountain hikes increased because I frequently (often also in the evening after work)
went up the Pfänder, the nearest hill which exceeds 1000 m height. Such easy hikes have a considerably better chance of success than ski or high tours, so the percentage
looks better since then. From 2009 on, the hikes are not for expedition training but remain our only reasonable option (with small child). Glacier tours are impossible with small child on one's back.
