It's about twelve-and-a-half times as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench).
In other words, 74.250 nautical miles is 12.6130 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 0.079283 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 5.88660 nautical miles 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 thirteen times as tall as Maxwell Montes.
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 0.077 times 74.250 nautical miles.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 5.90 nautical miles. 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 fifteen times as tall as a Mauna Loa.
In other words, the height of a Mauna Loa is 0.06667 times 74.250 nautical miles.

(a.k.a. Cerro Aconcagua) (Mendoza, Argentina)
Aconcagua measures 3.75910 nautical miles height at its peak.

It's about twenty times as long as The Las Vegas Strip.
In other words, the length of The Las Vegas Strip is 0.05 times 74.250 nautical miles.
(Las Vegas Boulevard S and W from Russel Rd to Sahara Ave)(Paradise, Nevada through Winchester, Nevada).
