"Standing 4,205 m (13,796 ft) above sea level, its peak is the highest point in the state of Hawaii. Much of the mountain is under water; when measured from its oceanic base, Mauna Kea is over 10,000 m (33,000 ft) tall."

Just sayin'....for every absolute, there is usually an exception somewhere based on definitions and terminology.

Everest rises the highest above Sea Level.
Mauna Kea rises the highest from base to summit.
Apparently K2 is not taller than Everest after all... Human101948 May 2016 #1
