DeanWatson posted a topic in Lunar,Ah! I did image the area after all! Heres the Hadley Riima (Rille) region and close up with the Apollo 15 landing site marked. You can just make out the rille itself as it bends around the crater in the middle of the 'bay', still pretty tiny. Looking at it, makes you realise what a tough job Scott must have had coming in for a landing there. Not like the nice flat plain that 11 had (and even they went long...)
