Sorry, here it is:

p = p0 + (rho)gh

So, I can calculate both the pressure at the bottom of an ocean and the pressure at the top of a mountain using this method?

In the case where the density does not change with pressure. For water (an incompressible fluid), that's a good approximation. For air, that's a bad approximation.

If you can get the exact density of the air on that heigth.
