Adamant Range
Parent Area: Big Bend Ranges

Area: 382 sq km.Location: This portion of the Selkirks is focused around Adamant Mountain, and lies between the valleys of Austerity and Stitt Creek, on the west, that of Windy Creek, on the northwest, and Kinbasket Lake on the east. Its southern boundary with the Sandford Range is defined by the valley of Palmer Creek and the Sandford Glacier. Geographically, you'd think Redan Pass and Adamant Pass would be the boundary between the Adamant Range and the Sir Sandford Range, but traditionally, guidebooks have put the boundary as Silvertip Pass and Azimuth Notch, which places Azimuth Mountain within the Sir Sandford Group, even though it's on the ridge extending from Blackfriars.
