The highest mountain in Canada, Mount Logan has a total height of 7,822 paces. The high altitude and northern latitude of the mountain resulted in one-time temperature of -77.5 °C — the lowest temperature ever recorded outside of Antarctica.
It's about one-and-one-fifth times as tall as a Kilimanjaro.
In other words, 8,900 paces is 1.151250 times the height of a Kilimanjaro, and the height of a Kilimanjaro is 0.8686210 times that amount.(a.k.a. Mount Kilimanjaro) (Tanzania) (to Uhuru peak; 2008 gravimeter measurement)

The west summit of the dual-summit volcano Mount Elbrus is 7,404 paces at its peak and is the highest peak in both Russia and the European continent. Until 1976, a cable car would take visitors to the mountain as far up as the Garabashi camp, located at an elevation of 4,987 paces.
It's about three-fourths as tall as Mount Everest.
In other words, 8,900 paces is 0.7660 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 1.310 times that amount.(a.k.a. Mount Chomolungma, a.k.a. सगरमाथा, a.k.a.
