Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-two-hundred-fifty-thousandth as long as The Great Wall of China (wall only)
In other words, 4.30 ropes is 0.0000041880 times the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only), and the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only) is 238,800 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (wall segments only)
The Great Wall of China has total wall segment length of 1,027 ropes. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about one-two-hundred-fifty-thousandth as long as The Amazon River
In other words, 4.30 ropes is 0.0000040720 times the length of The Amazon River, and the length of The Amazon River is 245,600 times that amount.
(from Nevado Mismi, Arequipa, Peru through near Marajó, Brazil) (approximate distance)
The Amazon River has an approximate distance of 1,056,000 ropes. Although by most measures it is the largest and one of the most significant rivers in the world, the region surrounding the Amazon is mostly sparsely populated and the river itself has no bridges across it at any point.
It's about 250,000 times as long as a Strand of Hair
In other words, the length of a Strand of Hair is 0.00000380 times 4.30 ropes.
(average)
A strand of human hair averages 99 µm (micrometers), with blond hair being the finest and black hair the thickest. On a healthy scalp, each strand of hair will last up to 6 years.

It's about 300,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper
In other words, the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.00000300 times 4.30 ropes.
(for US Letter, a.k.a. ANSI A; 215.9mm by 279.4mm (8.5 in x 11 in); 20lb)
A single sheet of 20 lb, 8.5 inch x 11 inch paper is just 0.0000200 ropes thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet.
It's about one-three-hundred-fifty-thousandth as long as The Great Wall of China (total)
In other words, 4.30 ropes is 0.000002960 times the length of The Great Wall of China (total), and the length of The Great Wall of China (total) is 338,000 times that amount.

The Great Wall of China, including all branches and trenches, is 1,450,000 ropes. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about one-five-hundred-thousandth as long as The Diameter of Earth
In other words, 4.30 ropes is 0.00000205489480 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 486,642.920 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 2,092,564.50 ropes at the Equator. The first complete view of Earth's diameter was in a photograph taken from a V-2 rocket launched in 1946 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 17,160 ropes.
