On many hiking trails through mountainous areas, dangerous or difficult sections are secured by technical means like steel cables, fixed ropes, ladders, or rungs. Use ladder=yes for parts of hiking trails with a ladder. It is also possible to define the length in meter instead of yes as a value.
This tag is added to an existing highway=path. Short sections can be tagged as node, longer sections as way. This tag is meant for hiking trails, but there is also a proposal to use it for via ferratas.
