Freely traverse the mountains (5)
I believe the answer is:
This clue could be a double definition.
'freely traverse' is the first definition.
'range' can be an answer for 'traverse' (thesaurus). I am not sure about the 'freely' bit.
'mountains' is the second definition.
(range of mountains)
'the' acts as a link.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for range that I've seen before include "Walk for miles" , "Mountain chain" , "Area for shooting practice" , "Variety; wander" , "Large stove" .)
