It's about one-five-hundred-fiftieth as tall as Mount Logan
In other words, 72 shaftments is 0.001841 times the height of Mount Logan, and the height of Mount Logan is 543.20 times that amount.
(Kluane National Park and Reserve, Yukon, Canada) (elevation)
The highest mountain in Canada, Mount Logan has a total height of 39,110 shaftments. 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-five-hundred-fiftieth as tall as Denali
In other words, 72 shaftments is 0.001772 times the height of Denali, and the height of Denali is 564.30 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 40,640 shaftments 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 one-six-hundred-fiftieth as long as The Las Vegas Strip
In other words, the length of The Las Vegas Strip is 630 times 72 shaftments.
(Las Vegas Boulevard S and W from Russel Rd to Sahara Ave)(Paradise, Nevada through Winchester, Nevada).
Although technically located beyond the city limits of Las Vegas (along with the well-known "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign), the stretch of road known as the "Las Vegas Strip" runs 45,000 shaftments along Las Vegas Boulevard South and West from Russel Road at the south end to Sahara Avenue at the north end. The casinos and hotels on the Strip display an estimated total of 160,000,000 shaftments of neon light tubing.

(a.k.a. Cerro Aconcagua) (Mendoza, Argentina)
Aconcagua measures 45,682 shaftments height at its peak. Although there is no definitive evidence that members of the indigenous Inca civilization ever reached the peak the mountain, numerous archeological sites have been found on the slopes of the mountain, including a naturally-embalmed Incan mummy was discovered on a 34,121 shaftments high ridge.
It's about 800 times as long as an Aspirin
In other words, 72 shaftments is 780 times the length of an Aspirin, and the length of an Aspirin is 0.0013 times that amount.
(for up & up aspirin, 325mg, regular strength tablets) (a.k.a. acetylsalicylic acid, a.k.a. ASA)
