You seem to ask about the tallest mountain outside the Himalayas.
Olympus Mons (Latin for "Mount Olympus") is the tallest known volcano and mountain in the Solar System and was formed during the Amazonian epoch. It is located on the planet Mars at approximately 18░24′N 226░00′E / 18.4░N 226░E / 18.4; 226. It is a little under three times as tall as Mount Everest.
There is a castle that sits on black rock in Edinburgh, right?
The Rocky Mountains were twice the size they were now, much higher than the Himalayas. This can easily be calculated by putting the amount of eroded material found in basins, such as the Wind River Basin and in the piedmont to the east of the mountains.
