natural=arete is used to tag an arête: A thin, almost knife-like, ridge of rock which is typically formed when two glaciers erode parallel U-shaped valleys. Arêtes can also form when two glacial cirques erode headwards towards one another.

See arête on Wikipedia

Mapping

  • As a way: draw a linear way along the ridgeline of the arête, the line of highest ground, then add:

If the arête has a name, add name=*

Often an arete will connect with a natural=peak and may also include a natural=saddle.
