Right: A stereoscopic view of the only mare ridge climbed by man. The ridge crosses the Taurus-Littrow valley shortly west of the Apollo 17 landing site (large arrow) and was traversed by astronauts Gene Cernan and Jack Schmitt in the Apollo 17 lunar roving vehicle. Geologic and topographic maps of the area appeared earlier in this chapter (figs. 61 and 62). From the valley floor the ridge extends northward into the highlands. It is offset between the two small arrows and is partly buried by dark mantling material along its northern extension. B.K.L.
