LO-V-105M Mons Hadley Delta is the roughly circular mountain mass just below center, with the 2-km St. George crater on its northwest flank, and the flat plains of Palus Putredinis beyond. The rille snaking across the plain is a small part of Rima Hadley, and the Apollo 15 Site is to its right. Around the landing site, the South Cluster of craters and the unexplored North Complex (with its suspected volcanic extrusions) are easily recognized; as is (on the opposite side of Rima Hadley) the elongated trough of 2-km Julienne (near the center left margin).
