Most difficult day trail in the US

Most difficult day trail in the US

Earlier this summer I did Barr Trail on Pikes Peak. Such a rewarding experience to hike to the summit! Now I'm hooked! I thought it was very difficult, but would like to challenge myself even more. I've been training my body specifically for hiking ever since I got back. What would be a harder trail than Pikes Peak?
For those that have done these before please rate them in order from most difficult to least difficult (i know they're all very difficult)

Cactus to Clouds
Mount Whitney
Longs Peak
Grand Canyon Rim to Rim
Barr Trail

I've read a bit about each of these trails but I'm having trouble deciding which to hike next. I did Barr Trail alone, but I'll probably bring a friend from my university with on this next one.
These must be day hikes because I dont want to bring an entire pack with sleeping bag and tent.
Thanks so much for any help or advice you can give!
