How are sea stacks formed?

Waves pounding the shoreline can make cracks. The cracks then gradually get larger and turn into a small cave. When the cave wears through the headland, an arch forms. Further erosion causes the arch to collapse, leaving the pillar of hard rock standing away from the coast-the stack. Eventually, erosion will cause the stack to collapse, leaving a stump.
