Are there lunar mountains that wouldn't have eroded much?

I know that most lunar mountains that humans went near had been heavily eroded by micrometeorites. Are there mountains or craters that have not been effected much? Tycho perhaps? <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <hr style="margin-top:0.5em;margin-bottom:0.5em" />Will Pittenger<hr style="margin-top:0.5em;margin-bottom:0.5em" />Add this user box to your Wikipedia User Page to show your support for the SDC forums: <div style="margin-left:1em">{{User:Will Pittenger/User Boxes/Space.com Account}}</div> </div>

Best guess is pretty much all have been affected and if we were to land near tycho, we'd see its mountains showing some evidence of such erosion. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><strong>My borrowed quote for the time being:</strong></p><p><em>There are three kinds of people in life.
