Not  so well known but higher than some

The peak in the middle above the Armadillo is the South Peak and the peak on the right is Baxter Peak. They are to scale since they are in the same photo. From the south, South Peak looks higher but here Baxter Peak looks (and is somewhat higher) The vertical scale is 2350 feet.
