Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-fifth as tall as The Eiffel Tower.
In other words, 9.650 ropes is 0.1820 times the height of The Eiffel Tower, and the height of The Eiffel Tower is 5.490 times that amount.
(a.k.a. La Tour Eiffel) (Paris, France) (to flagpole peak)
The Eiffel Tower stands 53.10 ropes tall, including its flagpole. The Tower is the largest structure in Paris as most other buildings are governed by a zoning restriction limiting them to a height of 6.07 ropes or less.
It's about one-fifth as long as The QE2.
In other words, the length of The QE2 is 5 times 9.650 ropes.
(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2) The QE2 has a total length of 48.20 ropes. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 1,570,000,000 ropes, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
It's about one-fourth as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, 9.650 ropes is 0.2590 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 3.860 times that amount.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 37.20 ropes above the surface of the San Francisco Bay. One of the key designers of the bridge, Charles Ellis, had no engineering degree when he began working on the project, but would later go on to write what became a standard textbook on structural engineering, and would ultimately be forced to complete his calculations on the bridge by working without pay for five months.
It's about one-third as tall as The Space Needle.
In other words, the height of The Space Needle is 3.130 times 9.650 ropes.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 30.20 ropes tall. With a track-and-wheel design inspired by railroad mechanics and a precisely-configured balance, the restaurant near the top of the space needle requires just a 1.5 hp motor to rotate at speeds of about 0.053 kph (0.033 mph).
It's about one-third as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral.

(Washington, D.C.)
The Washington Monument measures 27.7710 ropes tall, with some discrepancy due to the fact that the Monument's base is slightly below the surrounding ground. Interrupted in its construction by the American Civil War, it was almost 36 years between groundbreaking and the completion of construction.
It's about one-third as tall as The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel).
In other words, 9.650 ropes is 0.3570 times the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel), and the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel) is 2.80 times that amount.
(a.k.a. 新加坡摩天观景轮, a.k.a. சிங்கப்பூர் ஃப்ளையர், a.k.a. Pelayang Singapura) (Marina Centre, Singapore)
The Singapore Flyer has a height of 27.10 ropes. Based on recommendations from Feng Shui masters, the wheel was re-engineered to spin in the opposite direction five months after it began operating.
