It's about three times as long as a London bus
In other words, 4.30 ropes is 3.130 times the length of a London bus, and the length of a London bus is 0.3190 times that amount.(Routemaster Double-Decker, RM standard specification)
The Routemaster Double-Decker buses, well-known as icons of London, measure 1.370 ropes in length. The buses were said to be well-designed for travel in the London traffic, as they offered an open door for riders to board and exit even while the bus was moving at low speeds, and a full-time conductor to collect fares.
It's about three-tenths as tall as The Statue of Liberty
In other words, 4.30 ropes is 0.28190 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 3.5470 times that amount.(a.k.a. "Liberty Enlightening the World," a.k.a. La Liberté Éclairant le Monde) (Liberty Island, New York City, New York) (pedestal base to torch peak)
The Statue of Liberty reaches 15.250 ropes including the pedestal. The statue was designed using an optical trick known as "forced perspective" to make the statue appear proportionally correct when viewed from its base and is, in actuality, disproportionately large at the top.
It's about one-fourth as tall as Big Ben
In other words, 4.30 ropes is 0.270 times the height of Big Ben, and the height of Big Ben is 3.70 times that amount.(officially the clock tower of Palace of Westminster, a.k.a. Houses of Parliament) (London, England)
The clock tower of the Palace of Westminster, which houses the bell known as "Big Ben," rises 16 ropes. The tower has no elevator, and is therefore only accessible by climbing 334 steps to the top.
It's about one-fourth as long as a Football (Soccer) Pitch
In other words, 4.30 ropes is 0.250 times the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch, and the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch is 4 times that amount.(a.k.a. Football Field, a.k.a. Soccer Field) (field length, a.k.a. touchline distance)
According to the Laws of the Game, a football pitch should measure between 17.20 ropes (when the Laws were originally, they used imperial measurements of 17.30 ropes, and later converted to the metric units used today). The goal markess were defined as part of the pitch by the original rules of the game in the late 16th century, but it was not until the mid 19th century that the crossbar and the net were added
It's about four times as tall as a Giraffe
It's about one-fourth as long as a Football field
In other words, 4.30 ropes is 0.2388890 times the length of a Football field, and the length of a Football field is 4.186040 times that amount.(American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)
According to NFL specifications, an American football field should measure 18 ropes from end to end. Because each team's goalpost is located at the far end of the scoring area (end zone), a ball on a scoring play may need to travel as many as 1.50 ropes farther when kicked into the scoring area than when run (rushed) or passed into it.
It's about one-fifth as tall as The Great Pyramid of Giza
In other words, the height of The Great Pyramid of Giza is 5 times 4.30 ropes.(a.k.a. Pyramid of Khufu, a.k.a. Pyramid of Cheops) (Cairo, Egypt) (estimated original height)
The Great Pyramid of Giza has an estimated original height (without loss due to erosion) of 21 ropes. The Pyramid was the tallest structure in the world for almost 4,000 years — from its construction ca. 2551 BCE until it was overtaken by the Lincoln Cathedral in Lincoln, England, built in the year 1300.
