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 safety_rope=yes for parts of hiking trails with a rope. 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, it shouldn't be used for via ferrata because those ways are secured continuously by technical means.
