Differential erosion / weathering:

These features develop in rocks which have varying resistance to the agencies of EROSION and/or weathering so that parts of the rock are removed at greater rates than others. A typical example is the removal of soft beds from between harder beds in a series of sedimentary rocks. The term may be applied to any size of feature, from small-scale ‘etching’ to the regional development of hills and valleys controlled by hard and soft rocks.
