Boston Marathon bombing amputee scales mountain in Ecuador

BOSTON (AP) — Boston Marathon bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet-Davis can check mountaineering off her bucket list.

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

Haslet-Davis reached the summit of 18,996-foot Volcan Cayambe (foal-CUN’ ky-UHM’-bay) with a team of climbers from the Range of Motion Project. The nonprofit group helps provide prosthetic limbs to people around the world who don’t have access to them.

The expedition summited the snow-capped mountain Sunday.
