It's about one-tenth as tall as Aconcagua.

It's about one-tenth as long as The Las Vegas Strip.
In other words, the length of The Las Vegas Strip is 10 times 868 paces.
(Las Vegas Boulevard S and W from Russel Rd to Sahara Ave)(Paradise, Nevada through Winchester, Nevada).
Although technically located beyond the city limits of Las Vegas (along with the well-known "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign), the stretch of road known as the "Las Vegas Strip" runs 8,900 paces along Las Vegas Boulevard South and West from Russel Road at the south end to Sahara Avenue at the north end. The casinos and hotels on the Strip display an estimated total of 31,000,000 paces of neon light tubing.
It's about one-tenth as tall as Denali.
In other words, 868 paces is 0.10680 times the height of Denali, and the height of Denali is 9.3630 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mount McKinley, a.k.a. Doleika, a.k.a. Traleika, a.k.a. "The Great One") (Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska) (South peak)
The highest mountain peak in North America, Denali's South Peak measures 8,127 paces above sea level at its peak. The impetus for the name Mount McKinley was US president William McKinley of Ohio, and disputes over the which of the mountain's names should be officially recognized regularly occur between Ohio Congressmen and Alaska politicians.
It's about one-tenth as tall as Mount Logan.
In other words, 868 paces is 0.1110 times the height of Mount Logan, and the height of Mount Logan is 9.009 times that amount.
(Kluane National Park and Reserve, Yukon, Canada) (elevation)
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.
