Residents made a bet with more than 100 French Soldiers that they could not move that rock. The Frenchmen pushed and pulled and were working with poles, but the rock did not move a millimeter.
This tag was suggested for mapping areas of rocks and small skerries that can be used for navigation or that might be a potential danger for navigation.
This tag was also used during the French Corine Land Cover (See details on the french page) to import areas made of solid rocks (opposed to natural=scree) Those areas can be seen in mountains or near coast.
The proposal for natural=bare_rock was also originally the page proposing natural=rock. Talk:Proposed features/bare rock#More descriptive tag name is the discussion related to this.
