Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about five times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, 592 fathoms is 4.770 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.210 times that amount.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 124 fathoms above the surface of the San Francisco Bay. One of the key designers of the bridge, Charles Ellis, had no engineering degree when he began working on the project, but would later go on to write what became a standard textbook on structural engineering, and would ultimately be forced to complete his calculations on the bridge by working without pay for five months.
It's about one-fifth as tall as Mount Elbrus.
In other words, 592 fathoms is 0.19190 times the height of Mount Elbrus, and the height of Mount Elbrus is 5.2110 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mingi Tau, a.k.a. Эльбрус, a.k.a. იალბუზი) (Karachay-Cherkessia and Kabardino-Balkaria, Russia) (west summit)
The west summit of the dual-summit volcano Mount Elbrus is 3,085 fathoms at its peak and is the highest peak in both Russia and the European continent. Until 1976, a cable car would take visitors to the mountain as far up as the Garabashi camp, located at an elevation of 2,078 fathoms.
It's about one-fifth as tall as a Kilimanjaro.
In other words, 592 fathoms is 0.1837870 times the height of a Kilimanjaro, and the height of a Kilimanjaro is 5.441080 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mount Kilimanjaro) (Tanzania) (to Uhuru peak; 2008 gravimeter measurement)
Kilimanjaro rises to 3,221.120 fathoms at its peak. An isolated peak with no surrounding mountain range, Kilimanjaro is considered the world's tallest freestanding mountain.
It's about one-fifth as tall as Mount Logan.
In other words, 592 fathoms is 0.18170 times the height of Mount Logan, and the height of Mount Logan is 5.5040 times that amount.
(Kluane National Park and Reserve, Yukon, Canada) (elevation)
The highest mountain in Canada, Mount Logan has a total height of 3,259 fathoms. 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.
It's about one-fifth as tall as Denali.
In other words, 592 fathoms is 0.17480 times the height of Denali, and the height of Denali is 5.7210 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 3,386 fathoms 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 six times as tall as The Space Needle.
In other words, 592 fathoms is 5.880 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 0.170 times that amount.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 101 fathoms tall. With a track-and-wheel design inspired by railroad mechanics and a precisely-configured balance, the restaurant near the top of the space needle requires just a 1.5 hp motor to rotate at speeds of about 0.053 kph (0.033 mph).
It's about six times as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral.
In other words, 592 fathoms is 6.220 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 0.1610 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom)
St. Paul's Cathedral measures 95.10 fathoms to its peak. The southwest tower of the Cathedral contains the bell known as "Great Paul," which is the largest bell in Great Britain at 15,000 kg (16.5 tons), outweighing the more iconic Big Ben bell by about 3,000 kg (3 tons).
