Mons Hadley

Mons Hadley

Mons Hadley (15,093 feet; 4,600 m.) and its neighbor Mons Hadley Delta (11,484 feet; 3,500 m.) are perhaps the most famous of lunar mountains, because they served as the dramatic backdrop to the Apollo 15 mission in July of 1971.

These were both named after English mathematician and inventor John Hadley (1682-1744). Both peaks are located in the Montes Apenninus mountain chain. The mountains have not been summited yet, however an astronaut of Apollo 15 did climb a short distance on Hadley.
