Brief
 Montes Recti is a straight mountain range in the  NW quadrant about 90 km long with heights up to 1800 meters. Looking at the Section 11 Rukl lunar chart you would think the small mountain range  would continue into the next upper Section (3) but it doesn't. The even more interesting Montes Teneriffe is located out of frame to the right and is the subject of its own web page. Lunar Orbiter 4 provided excellent detail in the overhead image at right.
