Is slumping mass movement?

Yes, slumping is a mass movement. Slump is slipping of one or several units of rock debris with a backward rotation with respect to the slope over which the movement takes place. Rapid rolling or sliding of earth debris without backward rotation of mass is known as debris slide. Debris fall is nearly a free fall of earth debris from a vertical or overhanging face.
