Some parts of thin granite dyke walls will shatter due to the development of cracks and then form holes as a result of long-term weathering. In contrast, honeycomb caves in arid areas form on windward granite slopes. In addition, honeycomb caves subject to further wind erosion will continue to be abraded and form holes; this is also called a granite lattice (Fig. 27).
