I think Mt. Piton is a lunar mountain that might interest some of you. Any pics?

Wikipedia (and the internet at large) has several images and a description of this. What about it is of particular interest?

Stupid me never thought of the obvious: http://the-moon.wikispaces.com/Mons+Piton

It just looks like a great place to visit. Don't know about finding the Sentinel on its summit--but it looks most like the old paintings of what the lunar surface were thought to be before we saw lunar gardening erosion from micrometeoroids allowing low rolling hills instead of craggy peaks that Chesley Bonestell had envisioned.
