From the south: The Wedge, Lost Peak, Third Peak, Dingleberry, Wildcat, Razorback, and The Spire (with The Spike sticking out of its long north face). Not all of the peaks are visible from all angles, Lost Peak in particular tends to disappear behind its neighbors when the range is approached from the east. Third Peak, Dingleberry, Wildcat, and Razorback all have non-technical or nearly non-technical routes to their summits.
If approaching from Aguirre Springs, take the Pine Tree Trail. For The Spire and Razorback take the north fork of the trail and go up the canyon between Low Horn 6 and The Spire. For the other High Horns, start up from the middle point of the Pine Tree Trail. Go up a ridge and pick the gully to follow higher up.
