Sally Ramsay Patrick was part of the team that attempted Mount Aconcagua in December last year. Here's her good luck message to this year's Adaptive Grand Slam team:

Hola! General, you are Argentina bound
Hitting Aconcagua for a second round

With Tel, Dave and Matt from the original team, 
The new group will have so much to glean

But with Harry's decisions and your jokes to ease pain
I'm sure the summit this time will be an easier gain

Beware the great winds as they scream o'er that peak
and cross fingers the weather this time is no freak.

To Jaco, we missed you on that first attempt
We'd have had many a laugh had you not been exempt!

Del, with luck, a rod and a cast
Might make a fish tale into a memory to last!

To the rest of the crew, new but select,
I wish you great craic, but please return all correct

I trust you'll miss Luggsy, whose language was blue
My vocab emerged as something quite new!

Scotty and I wish you well on your way
We'll be sad not to be part of the summit display

To Kelda, I say, please do not stop
Until you have beaten those men to the top!

I'm relying on you, please represent me
And carry my thoughts to the summit to free

So adios amigos, bon suerte et al
Hasta luego quando la montaña es final!
