BOSTON — Boston Marathon bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet can check mountaineering off her bucket list.

The professional ballroom dancer lost a leg in the 2013 finish line attacks and ran the entire 26.2-mile race last spring. Over the weekend, she scaled Ecuador’s third-highest mountain.

Haslet reached the summit of 18,996-foot Volcan Cayambe with a team of climbers from the Range of Motion Project. The nonprofit group helps provide prosthetic limbs to amputees around the world who don’t have access to them.

The expedition summited the snow-capped mountain Sunday.

“I feel the most grounded I have felt in over three years,” Haslet said Monday from Ecuador in a Twitter message exchange with The Associated Press. “There is something beautiful about disconnecting from the outside world and connecting with people who are passionate about a cause: gathering around a fire, training together, and bonding in a way you only can without outside influences.”
