It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as Aconcagua
In other words, 29 smoots is 0.0070889 times the height of Aconcagua, and the height of Aconcagua is 141.07 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Cerro Aconcagua) (Mendoza, Argentina)
Aconcagua measures 4,090.90 smoots height at its peak. Although there is no definitive evidence that members of the indigenous Inca civilization ever reached the peak the mountain, numerous archeological sites have been found on the slopes of the mountain, including a naturally-embalmed Incan mummy was discovered on a 3,055.60 smoots high ridge.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as long as Calangute Beach
In other words, the length of Calangute Beach is 100 times 29 smoots.
(Goa, India) (approximate)
One of the most popular tourist destinations in Goa, Calangute Beach, the "Queen of Beaches," stretches about 7 km in length.
It's about one-two-hundredth as tall as Mount Everest
In other words, 29 smoots is 0.00558 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 179 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mount Chomolungma, a.k.a. Sagarmatha, a.k.a. Mount Qomolangma, a.k.a. सगरमाथा, a.k.a. Chajamlungma, a.k.a. ཇོ་མོ་གླང་མ, a.k.a. 珠穆朗玛峰, a.k.a. Zhūmùlǎngmǎ Fēng) (Sagarmatha Zone, Nepal and Tibet, China) (to summit, excluding snow depth)
Mount Everest is 5,200 smoots above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.00235 smoots and shifting it to the northeast by 0.00264 smoots each year.
It's about one-two-hundredth as tall as a Mauna Loa
In other words, 29 smoots is 0.005383 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 185.80 times that amount.
(Hawaii) (Hawaiian island volcano) (total height from seafloor)
Mauna Loa, one of the five volcanoes which forms the island of Hawaii and the tallest mountain in total height in the world, rises to 5,406 smoots above the seafloor. The peak of Loa is home to the approximately 6,000 sq. m (0.6 ha) Lake Waiau, one of the highest altitude lakes in the United States outside of Colorado.
It's about one-two-hundredth as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench)
In other words, 29 smoots is 0.0045269 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 220.90 times that amount.
(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)
The Challenger Deep, at the southern end of the Marianas Trench, reaches a depth of 6,406.20 smoots below sea level. There has been only one manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep — a 1960 voyage that took 4 hours and 48 minutes to reach the bottom.
It's about one-two-hundredth as tall as Maxwell Montes
In other words, 29 smoots is 0.0045 times the height of Maxwell Montes, and the height of Maxwell Montes is 220 times that amount.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 6,500 smoots. Since Venus does not seem to have the kind of tectonic activity which gives rise to mountains on Earth, the origin of the Venusian mountain remains the subject of some dispute.
It's about one-five-hundred-fiftieth as tall as Olympus Mons
In other words, the height of Olympus Mons is 560 times 29 smoots.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 16,000 smoots. The mountain has been known to astronomers since the nineteenth century because it is tall enough to rise above Mars' frequent dust storms.
