Fault Block mountains or Horst- formed when colliding plates build up pressure along parallel cracks (faults) in the Earth's surface. The extreme pressure causes large blocks of land to slip and be uplifted. Elevations are normally greater than 3000 meters above sea level. Example: The Sierra Nevadas of California.
