It's about one-eight-thousand-five-hundredth as tall as Aconcagua
In other words, 5.30 shaftments is 0.00011602 times the height of Aconcagua, and the height of Aconcagua is 8,619.20 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Cerro Aconcagua) (Mendoza, Argentina)
Aconcagua measures 45,682 shaftments 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 34,121 shaftments high ridge.
It's about one-ten-thousandth as long as Calangute Beach
In other words, the length of Calangute Beach is 10,000 times 5.30 shaftments.
(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-ten-thousandth as tall as Mount Everest
In other words, 5.30 shaftments is 0.00009130 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 11,000 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 58,100 shaftments above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.0262 shaftments and shifting it to the northeast by 0.0295 shaftments each year.
It's about one-ten-thousandth as tall as a Mauna Loa
In other words, 5.30 shaftments is 0.00008810 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 11,350 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 60,370 shaftments 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-fifteen-thousandth as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench)
In other words, 5.30 shaftments is 0.0000740890 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 13,497 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 71,535 shaftments 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-fifteen-thousandth as tall as Maxwell Montes
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 14,000 times 5.30 shaftments.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 72,000 shaftments. 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-thirty-five-thousandth as tall as Olympus Mons
In other words, the height of Olympus Mons is 33,000 times 5.30 shaftments.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 180,000 shaftments. The mountain has been known to astronomers since the nineteenth century because it is tall enough to rise above Mars' frequent dust storms.
