natural=ridge is widely used (~8000) for ridges:

There's also natural=arrete (273):

Remarkably, there is not a single use of natural=spur. Maybe people just
tag them as ridges? Could use natural=ridge, ridge=spur to be more precise
perhaps.

Taginfo doesn't seem to show any other information on them - I'd like to
see how else they're being used.
