Can you explain the claim of tallest land-based mountain on earth? Why wouldn't Everest be?
Taken from on-line: In fact, when measured base-to-peak, Denali is the tallest mountain on land anywhere in the world (Everest is only higher because its base is at a higher elevation).

The absolute tallest mountain from base to top is Mauna Kea in Hawaii, the base is under water.

Mt Everest is the tallest above Sea Level.
