Compass for the mountains (5)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this clue is a double definition.

'compass' is the first definition.
(I know that compass can be written as range)

'the mountains' is the second definition.
(range of mountains)

'for' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for range that I've seen before include "Mountain stretch" , "Breadth (of variation)" , "spectrum" , "Limit of effectiveness" , "Span" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times and the Evening Standard.
