it slumps


While reviewing Night Watch by Dickinson, while reading (skimming really) about the Moon, I spotted this on page 139:

There may once have been such [impressive tall] peaks on the Moon, but millions of years of impacting debris has hammered them down.  In addition, the lunar surface material, which is comparable to lumpy garden dirt, tends to slump over time.

It's lumpy on the Moon too I guess.
