Ice Wedging.
Water from melting snow and or rain trickles into the cracks of rocks. When the temperature of the air drops below freezing point the water within the rocks turns into ice. Water expands as it turns into ice. The ice stretches out in all directions and slowly forces the cracks apart. Ice melts and shrinks when it is warmed. Over long periods of time the stretching and shrinking of rocks by heat and cold causes rocks to split apart.

Scree.
Shattered fragments of rock trickle, flow, pour, (fall) down the slopes of mountains.
